~This Weeks Challenge~
Bug Out
Create a project that uses a bug

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

Confession time--I geek out over bugs!  Cricut bugs that is!  There are scads of great bug cuts on many, many Cricut cartridges, but I decided to pull out an oldie but a goodie--Stretch Your Imagination.  I think it was the first cart I bought after I got my Cricut.  I don't use it much anymore, although it has tons of cute images, but I remembered this particular one and wanted to use it.

I cut the two layers at 4.5" tall.  I used a green Cricut marker to add a little definition.  It's hard to tell in the photo, but I offset the top blade of grass layer.   

Am I capable of using a bug on something without putting googly eyes on it?  Why NO!  I am not.  I also used green flock on his antennae.

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, sponged it, and fussy cut the top of the grass stems.  The sentiment is from a very old SU set.

I hope you've enjoyed my creation today.  Please play along with us this week!  It's easy--just create a project with a bug on it, using at least one Cricut cut, and upload it to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  

Thanks for dropping by--have a great week!

This is super Amy. I love the monochromatic look, the texture & inking in the grass and those bug eyes finish that frog off perfectly!
