Buggin' Out

Our new challenge at High Hopes is
Buggin' Out
Play along with your High Hopes stamps for the chance to win a new one of your choice.  If you don't have a bug stamp, maybe use papers or bug accents :)

I've used an old High Hopes favourite, Hopeful Ant - coloured with pencils and some stickles added to his antennae.  I've also partially popped up the plant - I stuck the stems down with glue and then added dimensionals to the leaves.

Other challenges ....
