Little Ladybug Girl - Card

I got this image in an email recently and I thought I needed to make a card with this little cutie! I have to admit I totally lifted the layout and colors from an image I saw on the internet. The design varies slightly but pretty much...yep I lifted it! *okie is so ashamed* But in my defense, I was fighting a migraine all day and didn't get it licked until right before bed time. Oh, and I did make 6 of this design. Anytime I am doing a coloring card I always tried to make 6 so I don't have to go back and do more later.

Supplies Used:
Ladybug Image
Pattern Papers of:
  Cosmo Cricket
  Bo Bunny
  Martha Stewart
  My Minds Eye
Stampin Up Cardstock
Stampin Up Boho Blossom punch
EK Success Medium Daisy Punch
EK Success Photo Corner Punch
1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
Signo UM-153 Gel Pen
Colorbox Chalk Inks
Mounting Foam

I printed of several of the images so I could practice coloring with the ProMarkers since I haven't used them in quite some time and it's a good thing I did because I screwed up quite a few of them. I finally got the colors down that I wanted but I think I still need to work on my shading.

I had a hard time with the black because I wasn't sure how to shade it but I finally got it with using just a bit of black and the warm greys. I would like to tell you the rest of the colors I used but I honestly don't remember. I know I used 3 different reds and 3 different colors for the flesh.

I still haven't gotten pictures made of the other drink gift bags and I hope to do that this week. My job is keeping me pretty busy since getting back from vacation and I am in the middle of transferring some of my caseload to another database *okie wonders if people's eyes are glazing over like her's does when someone is telling her something she isn't interested in or doesn't understand* and basically that just means a lot of time doing a bunch of paperwork....which I H to the A to the T to the E! But the good thing is school will be out soon and I will have a lot more time to do some crafting, no money for extra goodies but I think I got enough in my scraproom to keep me busy for awhile!


  1. Loved your lady bug girl...Coloring was great. Sorry you had a migraine those things can be killers. Have a good week. :)
