Soft Pencil Thursday

This week we were challenged to make something other than a card using the Bichitos Set.  This set comes with so many adorable images ~ butterflies, a dragonfly, a snail, a caterpillar and this cute ladybug that I used to make a little wall hanging for my very own Love Bug.

I started out using a large coaster and covered it with a cardstock circle bordered with none other than my Martha Stewart border punch.  I saw someone else had done this with this punch, so I had to play around with it a bit, but it is really easy to do and I LOVE how it looks!  I colored the image with copics and highlighted it with Dazzling Diamonds.  Instead of using the antennae that comes with the image, I used some beaded wire sticks (heck if I know what they are really called LOL!), bent them and attached them to the back of the ladybug's head.  The entire image was then put on with dimensionals.  The letter beads (which were colored with a copic) are wired alternately with black beads.  I finally got ahold of a Bow Easy (and yes it is!) this weekend so I used it for the bow and added a charm that was also colored with a copic.  I can't wait to share this with my daughter! 

Be sure to visit the rest of the DT (links are on the left side) and see their wonderful creations.  We'd love to have you join in on our challenges over at Paper Craft Planet ~ they are every Saturday.  You can still get in on the current challenge that ends tomorrow night.  Each week, one lucky winner will receive a $10 voucher to the Soft Pencil Store.

Have a wonderful day :)
