Cards in Envy: Bug Me!

Cards in Envy's first challenge for August is "Bug Me" (insects or bugs). You can see the challenge here. All cards must fit into a standard size envelope for easy mailing. 

For this card, I dug out this caterpillar stamp by AMuse Art Stamps (remember when AMuse were wooden stamps?) I stamped the caterpillar onto the card stock. Then I stamped it a 2nd time onto wax paper and made a mirror image. I rubbed that image onto the paper next to the first caterpillar, creating 2 caterpillars. I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment underneath, drew a tiny heart and colored in everything using my Copic markers. I cut it out using a Gina Marie Slash Stitch Rectangle die.

I hope you'll come play along at Cards in Envy.

Stamping on a rock

I recently found a hidden rock at a free library stand and I joined the facebook group where the person who hid the rock was from. I used stazon ink to stamp my image onto the rock and then colored it with acrylic paints (which I already had in my stash). Its fun hiding them and seeing if anyone in your group finds them.

I bought these Nuvo drops at my stamp store a few weeks ago. I only bought one color but I think I would like more :).
