Victorian Ladybug

Published by at 11 56 pm under General Purpose Cards,Inkadinkado

Well, she looks Victorian to me! She was fun and easy!!! She’s included in a beautiful Inkadinkado set called Mindscapes. And today is Sunday so, of course, I had to play the Featured Stamper Challengeat SCS. And today’s featured stamper is Judy Rozema — she has such a great gallery, it was hard to chose a card, but after much browsing I chose this card to case. And my card looks totally different than Judy’s card, but when comparing the two you will notice I kept the layout along with the scalloped border, changing the image, color, paper and embellishment placement. Here’s mine:


Judy used circles for her main image, but I chose to use the Labels 1 Nestabilites. I particularly liked how Judy had the bottom layer under the side panel, so I repeated that as well. This was a relatively fast card to make, using Scarlet’s Letter DP by Basic Grey.


I loved making the ladybug. She is paper pieced with another sheet of red from Scarlet’s Letter and I added pearls to her back and rhinestones for her eyes. Quite the elegant lady, all decked out in red and jewels!!!

    Sharon I bought this stamp set and I am having nothing but probs. How did you condition the stamps to accept ink?
    I tried eraser and have been hesitant to try sandpaper.
