Tilda & Co Challenge 29 'It's A Bugs Life!'

I promised some more challenge entries earlier in the week, and this post is the first of two. I now have some Tilda stamped images and after watching Samuel painting with his watercolours on Sunday, I thought 'I can do that'!! So I dug out my trusty watercolour set (last used when at college in errr, cough, 1990) and got going!!

So, the challenge is:

Please show us in your work insects, ants, ladybugs, you name it if its a little creepy bug then show it off this week!

I was really pleased with how this image turned out, and then decided to try and find some backing paper to go with it. Fortunately, I already had printed this one from Vicki's blog - from the Berri-licious collection, teamed it with a paper from the Dovecraft Charcoal Prints Paper pack and I had some left over laminated sheets which I trimmed, rounded the edges and also used.

The dragonfly brads are from Lakeland and hide the glue marks well (I was a bit cack handed with it!) and the perfectly matching gems also hide them at the bottom! Ribbon - 10p bargain bundle from Blackburn market!


  1. Ooh!! I love the colours on this.. so different and rich looking, with some LUSH ribbon!! :o)
