I stamped the beetles from the Bugs and Kisses Stamp Set onto a piece of white cardstock and used a stitched die to cut out the panel and colored them with Copic Markers.
I love beetles and think they are truly gorgeous. I wanted to create a shiny background to mimic their shiny coverings, so I added Deco Foil Transfer Gel Blanco over the Wonky Checker Stencil and let it dry. Once it was dry I used my laminator to transfer Brutus Monroe Rainglow Foil over the stencil. I LOVE the effect!
I stamped a sentiment from the Bugs and Kisses Stamp Set and created a drop shadow with a piece of black cardstock. I used foam to mount all of my pieces onto my background.
