My daughter Lucy was helping me choose which Amber Ink digistamp to use for my next project. She totally LOVES the "Love Bug" and I do too! So I decided to make it her birthday card. We'll be celebrating her big #5 on Saturday, I can hardly believe it.
I used Gimp to recolor the bug and mask in the floral paper for the body, as well as to recolor the sentiment. I opened the images in Word and typed in the additional "For Our Little", then I printed the images on white cardstock, as well as the ipapers; resized to 6x6 so the patterns would be smaller.
I chose the card pattern Sweet & Simple from Jeanette Lynton's How To Book Originals. I colored the body of the bug with my bonding memories glue pen and covered it with prisma glitter. Then I created raised eyes and "Love Bug" letters using liquid glass.
