Stamps: Waltzingmouse - L'il Buddies, Compact Sentiments II, Spring Basket
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Distress - Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw, Dried Marigold
Accessories: PTI - Hexagon Die; Glitter and card from stash
I used a few challenges to make this card:
- One Layer Wednesday - OLW106 hosted this week by Heather @ Bits & Pieces
- Charisma Cardz Challenges - CCC37 - to use things with wings
- LIM86 - Take 3 of the previous LIM challenges
- St Luke's Charity Card Challenge - SLCCC18 - where we want to see "couples" - there's still plenty of time to join in with our challenge!
First I cut a stencil using my Papertrey hexagon die - I pushed out some of the hexagons and left a few in place, attached it to the card and sponged through some ink. I started with the palest yellow and built up to the strongest, suggesting part of a honeycomb. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the sentiment and then added a couple of little bees. I coloured the bees with Promarkers and added a touch of glitter to the wings. The three previous challenges for this week's LIM86 challenge are: LIM29 - Things that move (the bees), LIM59 - Masking (to create the honeycomb) and LIM66 - to use yellow.
Looks like I'm finally getting back into my groove - two posts today!! See you tomorrow!
Great card Deborah live the bees and the great sentiment...this could cover several occasions...
A really versatile and fun card x
I just love those cute little bees! The sponging you did is a great "honeycomb"!
Brilliant, Deborah! I love the way you sponged a honeycomb background for those sweet bees. Just fabulous. ann
So cute Deb! Love the little bees with shimmery wings and the hexagon background!
love it - the soft yellow background is gorgeous - nice way to create your own custom design background too! Thanks for St Lukes reminder I'll put it on the blog.
Cute card Deborah, you're right, it's a fun expression!
Thanks so much
Less is More.
Fantastic theme - love the subtle background and how it ties in (and that it isn't solid across the card!)
What a cute card those bees are buzzing.
A lovely, fun CAS card!
What a great idea to sponge your honeycomb. It is of course the perfect background for your little bees.
Super card Deborah
Perfect for a couple
