Buggin' Me

Just to prove to y'all that I do still have other stamps besides my bathing beauties ones, here's a bug.
This is an old wood mount stamp I've had for a long time. I don't use it often because I'm rather at a loss of what to do with it except stamp it.  There ins't a lot of coloring on it, so as you can see I invented some parts to color to give it some more interest.  I colored it with Twinkling H2Os. I've had those for a long time too and hardly ever think to break them out.  They have a fun shimmer to them.

The Fine Print: Stamp by Stampers Anonymous, embossed in black ep, colored with twinking H2Os, ribbon by A Muse Studio (retired), and cardstock from my stash.  I made this card for a "Buggin' Me" swap and the day I made it I had killed two bees inside my house.  That meant I wasn't about to put a bee on my bug card! I'd been bugged by bees enough by then.  We once had a hive in our cinder block siding. I thought they were back.  Apparently those were just advance scout bees and since they didn't return the hive moved elsewhere.

Love what you did with it - the little bits of colour bring it to life.

I like dragonflies much better than bees! In fact I think dragonflies are really pretty and special bugs. I like how you added some bits of color!

The color works. Dragonflies are very colorful insects if you look closely. They are also fierce hunters of other insects. Nice share PJ. - Jim
