Dare U 2 Digi Stamp #4 - Things with Wings

Okay - one last post from me today.
I feel like the day is half over,
even though it's only 10:30 in the morning here.
But then again, I've been awake since 4:30AM.
this is my last "Weekday" off, I will start my new job on Monday.
I never thought I'd hear myself say I can't wait to go to school.
But working there, and being a student are 2 very different things.

Anyway, this weeks challenge for
"Dare U 2 Digi Stamp"
is to use a digital image that has something to do with

So I did exactly that,
I used one of Dustin Pikes newest images
the Reading Bug.

I didn't want to make him all "Pretty" colored
I wanted it to be a GREEN BUG, he just had to be
What better book to read than..
I wrote that on there!
and of course I wanted to add some clouds behind him.
I colored him with copics, and then painted on some
Twinkling H2o's.
The sky is H2O's only, and so is the grass.
(I still need some practice coloring bugs)

The papers are from DCWV Spring matte stack.
I thought the little bug paper was perfect for this image.
Embellishments are just stash.
and the rest they say.....Is History!
