Papercut Bug

I don't usually have the patience for cutting intricate designs into paper, but armed with my new knife and inspired by papercutting master Elsita, I've attempted a flying bug with decorative wings [a tester] on linen embossed cardstock to be used as a paper element in my steampunk centerpiece.  Displayed on a bed of moss under a glass cloche, it awaits a few additional touches... some dried poppies, or real honeycomb, and polished stones for eyes.
