Today it's Sneak Peek #2 for one of two cute new sets being released August 9th by Chicken Girl Design Stamps, and carried by i {heart} papers. This set is called Hugs From a Bug -- which I will be giving away as Blog Candy in a few days! So stay tuned!

The SCS Sketch Challenge today was perfect for my mosquito.

I stamped the mosquito and sentiment in Palette Noir Black ink and then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I then colored with Copic markers, and added Crystal Stickles to the top of the wings. I cut out my image with Spellbinders Nestabilities Rectangles. The tag was made from Spellbinders Double Ended Tags. Click HERE to see all the Spellbinders items from i {heart} papers!

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Lime Rickey Collection, available at i {heart} papers.
