* Vera Lane Studio: Lightning Bugs


It's my DT day at Vera Lane Studio today and we have a new digi release. The digi set is called Lightning Bugs and there are 3 adorable digi images and a sentiment.

Here is my card:

I used the two lightning bug fairies and coloured them with Copic markers. They have some Crystal Stickles on their wings and in their flower centres. They are fussy cut and popped up on foam tape to give some dimension.


The background is made from blending inks - a mixture of Distress Inks (Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers) and Memento inks (Pear  Tart and Teal Zeal). Water droplets were sprinkled over the inks to bleach out some of the colour and add some texture to the background. I added some text stamping in teal and some stars in Peacock Feathers. White paint spatters and drips of Glimmer Mist were also layered onto the background. The edges of the background are inked with Jet Black Ranger Archival ink. 
The wonderful sentiment was cut into sections, edged with black ink and glued directly onto the background.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
