Spiders or insects

That's this week's challenge over at Less is more.

I chose a bug ;-) a ladybug or ladybird, depending on where you live.
 the stamps are clingstamps from Gingersnaps and they're called Bugga- Boo's.

I got these second hand, so I don't know how old they are or if they're still available, but they were so cute, I could  not resist.

I stamped the image onto Schut smooth watercolor paper with My Favorite Things Hybrid black ink and watercolored it with Distress inks.

Mounted the panel with foam tape.
Stamped the sentiment from Clearly besotted (brushed greetings II) with Versafine black onyx on the cardbase.
