TAG TUESDAY: The Pink Lady(bird)

 Yesterday I already wrote about ladybirds being important helpers in my garden. Many little creatures are, not just ladybugs. That's why I love this quote from Dave Goulson, UK scientist and founder of the British Bumblebee Conservation Trust, well-known for his books and his research on insects and of course bumblebees. If you don't know his books, you should really read them. They are not only funny, but also very informative.

I lately got interested in linocut/linoprint again, after doing this about 25 years back when I was in school.  The first things I cut were a bumblebee and a ladybug. For this huge tag I used a background paper by Sally Denton and added the quote and the ladybug linoprint, which I colored with watercolor pencils. I also added white paper to the back to write a message on. There's a lot of space on this tag. *LOL* With the leftovers I made another smaller tag.

Linking to TAG TUESDAY!
