Bug me

Hello!  In the spirit of wishing spring weather would stick around longer than 2 days, I'm stamping up a fun little summer card, hoping that will melt away this gray day!  I got this adorable little mini set from There She Goes called Bug Me Anytime and I'm so happy to have inked up this little dragonfly.  I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored him with Copics - then I added a little diamond glaze and some glitter on the wings - poof!  LOVELY sparkly wings. 

Best part about adding glitter to diamond glaze is the glitter is difficult to rub free, so you won't get it all over your envelopes once you send it.  Nice!  The papers are Stella & Rose Mabel from My Mind's Eye.

Have a wonderful Friday!
