I needed another ATC to send off this weekend. I usually make them in collections of three as you may have noticed in my previous posts, however I was a little stuck for time. I wanted to make one that had a play on words, but was themed along the lines of June Bugs.
So I started with a white card blank. I took a piece of green paper, patterned with silver glitter swirls and cut a strip and a square from it. The strip was added to the bottom of the blank and a length of red-based stripy ribbon attached over the top. I took my ladybird 'Urban Stamps' cling stamp and stamped the image onto red cardstock, sprinkling pink glitter over the stamped image. This gives a subtle sheen without obscuring the ladybird image. This was attached over the ribbon strip. Above the image the square of paper and a square of dotty washi tape were stuck with 'Me' and 'You' written respectively on them in black flexmarker. Between these 'Bug' was written in glue and pink glitter sprinkled over. Swirls were added around this using black flexmarker.
This card followed the following sketch from Sketch and Stash (rotated 90 degrees):
