It's a bug's world.
Yup, that is for sure -- they are everywhere! Usually I am not fond of the critters, but these bugs are just too wonderful not to love.
The grasshopper (and rooted floral) are stamps from the Two Nancy's Art Stamps that I am giving away in THIS POST (click HERE to enter). I stamped the grasshopper on a piece of Splatter background. What, dare you ask, is a "Splatter Background?" Well, if you are a subscriber, that mystery will be answered for you next week. It is one of the 15 new techniques in the June 2009 edition of the TJ Newsletter.
One of the things I love about stamping the very most is that you can take stamps from ONE stamp set, or even one stamp, and use it in trillions of ways. Kathie McGuire used this stamp set as the example for one of the June Tutorials, and I have been trying to find a way to coerce her to mail it to me! I will just have to CASE her and make my own -- and then I will share it with you as a sneak peak.
Now, I am off to an evening barbeque. Here's hoping that this grasshopper is the last bug I see tonight -- unless the ones I see are, um, splattered (sorry, couldn't resist!).
Hope you are having a nice weekend!
