For last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa Class I decided to concentrate on one product, the Ladybird Builder Punch.
I love punches and punch art, and have been wanting to make the wings into flowers and leaves for a while now.
To begin, the sentiment from the new Framed Occasions Stamp Set from the Annual Catalogue is stamped in Old Olive.
Using Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody, these bright flowers came to life, with the wings as the petals, and the body, with a little bit of cutting, making the centres.
Each petal was given some shading using a Sponge Dauber in Daffodil Delight.
Dots of Wink of Stella were added to the centre of the flowers before the flowers were arranged on the card. Leaves, also made from the wings in Old Olive were again given some Daffodil Delight shading before being slotted behind.
The ladybug (ladybird) is then made as it is intended, using Real Red and Basic Black.
Finally, some Matte Black Dots are added to make the spots.
I do love a bit of punch art and I think this creates a nice, bright and cheery project.
