A cute little bug...

...named Wade. I am currently obsessed with this color scheme....I'm even wearing it today! Well, not the top hat just the turquoise and green clothing. ;) I used the polka dots from Sassy Circles and white craft ink to make my background paper. Copics for coloring and Nesties for the layers. I left the rectangle nestie on my main image and sponged a bit of Cool Caribbean around the edges to achieve the airbrushed look...I'll be getting one soon!! When I met Debbie Olsen at CHA she showed me a few tricks using the airbrush and I knew I would soon be shelling out a pretty penny to own one.

Notice the cute watermark?? In my Adobe Elements class I've been learning about layers and brushes so when I stumbled across the tutorial by Kurtis I understood exactly what he was talking about. I already had this watermark created from class but he gave me a few extra tips on how to change the lighting of my font.

Hmm, anyone hungry for some candy yet? Stay tuned...
