It's so much more friendly with two!

Morning all.
It's time for a new challenge over at Uniko. Here's my card based on this month's picture

The pic stumped me at first but then I thought about using punch art to create some cheeky ladybirds, perfect for a child's card. There's lots of them around on my veggies at the moment!
I started them by die cutting an oval of red card and cutting it in half, then used the scattered polka dots stencil and a black Copic pen to create the dots on the red. The faces were made with a heart punch and a black circle. The heart was trimmed down to match the black circle and then inked around the edges with Tattered Rose DI. Using a red Copic I drew in a nose and then added the mouth and eyes with a black fineliner.. A twist of wire made the antennae, secured with tape, before the head was stuck to the body with foam pads.
The background was made by inking through the Nature's Treasures stencil with Twisted Citron DI, before adding the ladybugs and the sentiment from Birthday Sentiments.
Check out the rest of the team here for more inspiration, then why not join in?
