New digistamp - Home relocation

I love these little insects - the Dung Beetle. I mean, who in their right mind would build their home and have their kids in a ball of dung? And then still move it around like a mad man? During some of my field excursions for work - while chasing my favourite insect the locust - I often encounter dung beetles. I've watched 2 or 3 of them fighting over the same ball of dung, pushing it in all directions over amazing obstacles, and often just going around in circles - and they NEVER give up! A lesson in life?


 The digistamp is a new one in the shop and called  'Home relocation", and I used a little artistic license to draw this one by adding 'screwheads to the joints and wing joints. The eyes are also a bit 'cartoony'.
The image is coloured with my pencils, and I still think there is much better control with colouring pencils than with alcohol pens - but that's my opinion of course. Very little else added to the card except my handmade Washi tape and one diecut swirl.
