I have a few (and it is growing) retired stamp sets that sadly have never been used and Buggy Love (B1441) is one of them. When I saw it and thought of this month's special, Taste of Summer, an idea hit me.
Using a sketch from Brenda Rose (a fellow Close To My Heart sister), I created cute buggy love card.
Using the bee looking bug stamped with Close To My Heart's Archival Black ink, I colored the bee and flower with the ShinHan alcohol markers. I love them.
I cut this image out.
The sentiment is stamped using Black ink and a little doodling is added after the card was put together.
The White Daisy circle was in my stash of Cricut cuts - do have your unused diecuts hidden away somewhere?
The Flaxen Thick Twine worked well with this color scheme. Glue dots hold the bow and the ties in place.
And last for a little more texture, I added a little liquid glass to the wings.
I hope you have enjoyed my love of stamps, even if this one missed the love when it was active.
Now hop on over to Sheila's blog to see what she has in store for us!
