Bugs and Kiss and Birthday wishes going out to Jeanie Hays from Washi Horse Designs. Jeanie is the artist who illustrated the bugs and kisses digital stamp set sold by Polka Dot Orchard. Below is a birthday card I designed for her birthday.
Wanting to have this bug be the focal point of her card so I enlarging the image to just about fill the front of an A2 card. I then added some fun deco foil to the spots by using the deco foil adhesive glue and a bone folder. To bring this critter to life I used copic markers to color it. As this imaged set up I created the stenciled back grounds and the sentiment.
When Assembling the card I layered the background pieces. To give the beetle dimension I used two different sided pop up dots and slightly folded the beetle before sticking it to the card base. I also popped up one side of the sentiment.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEANIE!!!
