I can see the stamps and stencil beeing so popular!! 😊 Sorry, couldn't resist!! I cut a piece of black card for a mat layer, and a panel of white card slightly smaller. I placed the honeycomb stencil on the card, taped it in place, and lightly brushed on the pale lemon colour. I moved the stencil to cover the whole panel. Then I shifted the stencil and added the darker honey colour. Once completed I spritzed the panel with sparkle Sheer Shimmer and dried it. I stamped the heart on some gold shimmer vellum, heat embossed with clear powder, and cut it out. I coloured the reverse of some of the hexagons. I stamped the bee three times, heat embossed with clear powder, coloured the wings with clear Wink of Stella and used the WOS brush to add some colour to the bees' bodies. I carefully cut out all the bees. I put the honeycomb panel in my MISTI and stamped the sentiment. I attached the vellum heart and bees with collage medium. On the inside, I cut another mat layer of black card. On the white panel, I stamped the large word 'wish' in lemon and then again in amber to give some depth to the word. I added a little bee flying at the top and some honeycomb too. I'm submitting this card to Seize the Birthday - STB2604, where the theme is Anything Goes. I'm also playing along with Love to Craft Challenge Blog - LTCCB#22, where it's also Anything Goes.
I had such fun making this card - those bees are so cute! If you want to see more inspiration projects from the rest of the Design Team and our Guest Designer, Anna, do visit the Uniko blog. Our release schedule is:
