Insect Invasion

Hello friends, Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your patience while I've been having a few health problems.

Today I've finally got the strength to get creating again, and as it's the British Grand Prix I'm rooted to the sofa with my crafting stuff. I've seen that over at Less is More their theme is Something with legs,and at first I thought of the usual butterflies and animals, but then I remembered that I had a set of Inkadinkado insects ( as I'm scared stiff of creepy crawlies,I've no idea why I got these??). So out they came to invade the daisies from SU Inspired by Nature.

To make my entry I used SU Whisper White card for the base and stamped the flowers and grass from Inspired by Nature in Certainly Celery ( my favourite green),Crushed Curry,Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry.I then stamped the caterpillar climbing up the stem with Bermuda Bay and CCurry, and the spider on his thread hanging from the petals in Soft Suede and Dusty Durango.The Bumblebee and sentiment were stamped with Black Archival and coloured with CCurry, before finally rounding all the corners of the card.

Thanks for dropping by,and I hope to show you some more creations in the next few days.
