That's lucky :D

Hello again lovely crafty friends, I hope I find you all Tickety Boo ? :D Been a little chilly here today but we're set for a warm weekend, Yippee!!!

I have a card for this week's CASology challenge where the cue is 'LUCKY'

I took the pic from a stamp by Whipper Snapper called Hunny Bunny. I drew it much larger, on the stamp it's 3cm tall and mine is 10cm it has also gained another leaf and a ladybird :D They're precariously dancing along the flower stem! They'll be lucky if it holds their combined weight! I read on Google that ladybirds are considered lucky :D
Coloured with Copic Ciao pens and a little Diamond glaze to make the ladybird's wings shiny and done........ !!
Thanks for stopping by, hugs Gay x

Such a lovely card Gay and you are so talented to be able to replicate the image and add your spin on it:)I hope they didn't fall!!
Sadly I don't have any photos of my early career but the reason I got to meet so many celebs was that being in central London the salon was only busy lunchtimes and evening. So in between I did gent's manicures in the mens salon downstairs and thats where we had famous clients like Alec Guinness, Lord Snowdon, Eric Burdon, Alan Price, Clint Walker and Trevor Eve.
Do you have a photo in your catsuit? :)

I love how you took inspiration from the stamp, perfectly drawn Gay and great take on the cue word. Ladybirds are certainly lucky for us gardeners keeping all those pesky aphids at bay !!!
