CUTE as a bug & black iris

I love this sweet bug image by Crafty Secrets, it's in the Bug's Life set. Don't you wish we had 2 sets of hands to get ready every morning!! I used the "Cute as a bug"sentiment and the little dancing bugs to stamp on the artichoke strip. I love the dresser in the main image, I have one similar to that! I put Glossy Accents on the mirror to make it look like real glass.

Supplies: Stamps - Crafty Secrets Bug's Life from Crafty Secrets or ePaperie. Paper - SU! Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, Confetti White and Crafty Secrets Classic Paper Pad. Ink - Ranger Distress Walnut Stain and Copic markers from Hanna Stamps, ePaperie or Ellen Hutson. Acces. - Glossy Accents from ePaperie or StarLitStudio, button, Marvy scalloped oval punch, Creative Memories oval cutter, ribbon, slit punch, Tim Holtz ruler and poker, Chocolate Chip marker.

Here is my bearded black iris, isn't it beautiful? This is the first time it has bloomed. They call these black because they are such a deep eggplant color they are almost black. I was lucky enough to get these pictures right after a rain shower. I hope you enjoy them!


Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Pam, Love the cute as a bug and the beautiful iris. Is it Iris Japonica? How long from planting til bloom time? I live in Texas, so they are pretty much done now, but maybe next year. I could put them in during the fall and hopefully by spring It'll bloom, let me know, Sylvia
