Catch the Bug Sweet Summertime challenge

Today at Bugaboo Catch the Bug challenge blog, the theme is Summertime!  If you saw my post on Wednesday, I combined 3 Bugaboo Brats; Sean w/slingshot,  Sean w/Dog and Desiree and created this card......


I added a gradient background to the image before printing it with my inkjet printer onto Cryogen paper.  I used a lot of Copics to color this.  The DP is from Basic Grey's 6x6 Lime Rickey paper collection,  The border is a new Joy Crafts die.  I die cut it, embossed it and then airbrushed the embossing before removing it from the die.  Finished size is 6" square.  Be sure to check out the Catch the Bug challenge blog for more fabulous creations from the Design Team.  And play along for a chance to win....
  • 1st prize - 7 Bugaboo Digi Images of your choice
  • 2nd prize - 4 Bugaboo Digi Images of your choice
  • 3rd prize - 2 Bugaboo Digi Images of your choice 
We also have a guest sponsor, The Character Cafe, they will be awarding a $10 shopping spree to a lucky entrant.  Here is a card I made with their Walk on the Beach digi image, using the same layout as the card above.  I again created a gradient background behind the image before printing it out and coloring it with my Copic markers.  The DP is from Heidi Grace, finished size is 6" square.
