And here’s my take on this sketch:
Designer Paper - “BOWTIES” by Basic Grey
Stamp - by Paper Smooches
Beetle Shape - Flaticon free shape (credit and attribution http://www.flaticon.com/free-icon/beetle-shape_47159)
Beetle Wings - Barb Derksen
I have been dying to use paper from this 6 x 6 DP pack from Basic Grey so when I decided to jump into this challenge it was not a question in my mind I would choose a paper from this fun pack.
I kind of switched the layout of the sketch so my “shape” appears on the left side rather than the right. Such a rebel.
I hunted down the beetle shape and cut it with my Cameo and then fashioned a design for some wings. I used vinyl for both the beetle body and the wings. Often when I do a solid shaped item like this which requires some sturdiness, I actually fix the vinyl to cardstock before cutting and then cut using the cardstock setting.
I stamped the sentiment onto roughly torn watercolor paper (stamps are SO much crisper for the good quality paper, worth every penny!) I added a black ribbon and voila.
Ok, not quite voila after taking this picture because my Mr. and I decided this beetle looks even more cool with some plastic “googly eyes” - but time is of the essence so I did not have time to process a new pic.
Thanks for visiting!
