I caught a little bug!



Hi Folks, late one today! You know us gardeners, a merest hint of dry weather and we're out there mowing and digging to our little hearts content!
Any way, spent last night blog hopping over at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog and part of the challenge is to create a project with a "bug" on it. This little guy is the Friday Freebie from Bugaboo Stamps so I just "had" to use him. I decided to try something a bit different so I imported the png image into my graphics programme and lay it over a colourful background. The image (bug/leaves/jar lid/ribbon) stay white, but the background shows through the jar! How cool is that! Then I just coloured the white bits. A bit of ribbon and a ladybug charm, and a sweet little get well card is complete! Loved making this, hope it's in time for the challenge.
love as always Gina x x x
