Ladybirds and Daisies


Over at Allsorts this week there is a theme of Blossoms, butterflies, bugs. I have had a bit of a trawl through some of my very old stash this week, and from some of it came up with this. The stamp is Penny Black Lazy Daisies, stamped onto watercolour card and coloured with zig clean color markers. I have always loved this image. It reminds me of those warm spring days where suddenly there is a ladybird everywhere you look in the garden! The paper was from a very old Provo Craft Bitty Scrap pad - all blues, greens and purples, and I loved every one. What you can't see is the shine on the ladybirds and the shimmer on the centre of the daisies, from a gelly roll glaze and a gelly roll stardust pen. I also added the white marks on the ladybirds' faces with a white gel pen.
I am also entering this into the Penny Black and More challenge, where the theme is Spring.
I hope you are having a good week and thanks for your lovely comments.

This really is pretty Sally, love the backing DP and also that PB image, an old wood mounted one I wonder? Perfect for both our Allsorts and Penny Black and More themes, thanks so much for joining in at both.

AH! a Sunshiny card with a Summer garden and it's so beautiful.

We had an old broken sun umbrella that was going into the tip, until hubby started to unroll it and found a few hundred ladybirds hibernating in it. He was able to take it to the tip last week as most of them had gone.
