* Vera Lane Studio: Bug Me



We have had some beautiful warm sunny weather here over the last week which has definitely lifted my spirits a little. I've been busy in the garden tidying borders and planting up pots. The sunshine makes such a difference, doesn't it.

Today, at Vera Lane Studio, we have a new digi set release called Bug Me. It features five cute bugs and a sentiment and is perfect for summer projects. I decided to use four of them and make a set of ATCoins.

Aren't they cute little bugs! 

All the images were coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut. The backgrounds were made by using a stencil (#112 Heapza Hexagons) as a stamp, once it was loaded with Distress Oxide inks and spritzed with water. Stamping with tone on tone inks  add some detail (#383 Scripted Hexagons) and black stamping (with #374 Reverse Hexagons) adds a border. I also added some tiny pieces of torn washi tape (Wishy Washi designed by Janet). My die cuts a circle and a rim, so I used them together as they measured 2..5 inches diameter, and I mounted each ATCoin onto black card.

The honey bee is my favourite - he's wearing a sweater! He has some glittery wings.

The grasshopper is also a favourite:

And then there's the caterpillar - he's very sweet.

And my final Coin features the dragonfly:

That's all for now.

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