Aqua Bugs

I've got a quick 'just for fun' card to share today as I wanted to enter a couple of challenges that looked fun.  This one is a Wee Stamps image called 'sympathy bugs' but I think they're too cute just to use for sympathy cards, so this one is an 'any occasion' card using my (current) favourite Papermania papers.

I've coloured the image with my alcohol markers and then added some Sakura Stardust gel pens for some sparkle on the wings.  I've also used some glossy accents on the image.
