Keep Steppin'

This has been one of my mantras for a long time and that's what I've been doing today--Steppin'.
After coloring my Whee! card yesterday I did some more research on You Tube today about Copics and I decided if I was able to fill in with some light Copics I would be able pretty much do all the blending I might need.  So after some laundry and dinner, I ran up to Hobby Lobby, they were having 30% off on all markers, Yey! I had also discovered I still had a gift card from a friend from Christmas, Yey, again, I was able to fill in with a few colors. 
Stamped my bug with Momento black on some Georgia Pacific card stock that I had gotten to print my digis on and colored Mr. Bug with Copics and Bic Mark It pens. They blended very nicely and the card stock worked as good as the Neenah paper. In doing my research on You Tube, I discovered the Copic colorless blender removes ink or if you color out side the lines and consider that a boo boo, you can move the ink back inside the line, and yes, I went outside the lines, accidentally, and Yey! again, it worked!
When I saw that Tuesday Taggers challenge is It's a Bug's Life, this stamp immediately came to mind and the sentiment also, inside the card, It's Just Another Birthday. Kinda cute, huh? I'm also leaving a link here to The Craft Barn, they are sponsoring Tuesday Taggers again this week, you need to hop over and check them out if you haven't already, they've got some neat stuff and great service.
