FWF: Happy Bug!

Hello! Happy Friday!  Today I would like to share an ATC I made using stamps from the ippity set, A Little Buggy.  I brayered the background using SU inks: So Saffron, Crushed Curry and Apricot Appeal.  I then used a text stamp from Kitchen Sink Stamps and stamped over the brayered background in Crushed Curry.  I stamped my bug in black and then paper pieced his body with K&Company DP (Sera Sera).  I stamped the "happy" in black across the bottom and mounted on kraft cardstock.  I added tiny black gems to the bugs eyes.
I have never gotten into the whole ATC thing, but decided to try it. I actually joined a swap on SCS that required a bug of some kind.  I have always loved this beetle bug from ippity, so I decided to give it a go!

Thanks for stopping by!
