SOS 369: Quit buggin' me!

This week at Shopping Our Stash, Donna is our hostess and she is asking us to quit buggin' her!  Wait, no, she wants you to bug her!  Make a project featuring an insect or insects this week!

Here is the card I came up with:

I have to be honest: I have lots of buggy routes I could have taken: I found some Basic Grey paper from 2012 that has bugs all over it, I have tons of butterfly stuff, some ladybug stuff, some cool golden bee stickers... but I wasn't feeling any of it.  So I kind of went with my he{art} and this is what I ended up with. 

Supplies and notes:

  • The main panel was painted by yours truly using the first Jane Davenport watercolor set I purchased (Brights) on some pre-cut cheap watercolor paper
  • Tim Holtz stitch stamp from Tim's Patchwork Pieces used at the edge.  I haven't used this set in a while. 
  • The teal background paper was in my solid-colored paper stash, but it is not cardstock... it is thin and it must have come from the same place that last week's matting paper came from, maybe it was some of the stuff that came from the kid's stash that I thinned last winter.
  • Sentiment written with the same Jane Davenport set.
Hope you can join us over at SOS!  I know you have buggy stuff!


  1. ok, everyone's card this week is beautiful, but you definitely take the cake, missus, by virtue of having painted all your own bugs and sentiment! you never ever cease to amaze me, mimi!!! yowza! ♥♥♥
