Bug A Boo Valentine

Do you remember I entered the Catch the Bug challenge to make a non-traditional colored Valentine? Here is the post with my card. Well, I won first place (, not talent) and I got to choose 7 free digi images. Well, that was hard to just pick 7, Bug A Boo Stamps has some of the cutest and hilarious images I have ever seen.

Using Adobe Photoshop Elements, I combined 4 separate images to make this 5x7 easel card.  Aren't they just the cutest guys you have ever seen?  I printed the image onto Cryogen white paper with my inkjet printer.  I took this pic using a flash and if you click on it for the closeup, you can see all the sparkles in the Cryogen paper reflecting the light.  In real life my coloring is very smooth.  You really don't see the sparkles unless you tilt the paper.

I had never tried a 5x7 easel card but it is no different than any other size, just gives you lots more space for a sentiment.  I computer generated this one.

Copics used:
Monkey - E21, E33, B63, R37, G24
Mouse - W00, W1, R21, R37  Flower - Y19, YR16, G24
Dog - E42, E44, R21, W5  Envelope - R43 Hearts - R37
Bear - E11, E15, R21, W5, BG45, BG49, R37

I used W1 for the shadow below them and then airbrushed B32 around the image before removing it from my Spellbinders die.  The DP is from Archivers, the glitter hearts are K&Co.  The Hugs and Kisses border punch is from Martha Stewart.
