Hello and thank you for visiting me! My first creative post for a very long time and I have made two cards! Anyone who knows me personally knows I am scared of bees (wasps too) but in aid of Darnell's fabulous Twofer challenge I bought a bee stamp set (they had to be cute bees, not too realistic) and away I went! So I would like to enter my cards in the Twofer Challenge which is Bees!
For both cards I used the 'Bee' sentiment and another one from the set along with two of the bees. The set is Bee Happy by Hunkydory. All stamping is done with black Versafine. I hope these are ok to enter as when I look at them now, the layouts are rather similar - sorry! I didn't realise when I was making them - I was so involved (and enjoying myself!).
The one below also used lots of coloured snippets from my bits box to make the flower from Sizzix die set Flower Set.
The frame is from a die set from Gummiapan that I bought via Hochanda. The frame is from a snippet too. I added clear sparkle pen to the bees wings and the flower centres.
I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Pixies Snippets Playground - use Snippets.
Country View Challenges - its a Bugs Life.
An inky background for the this one.
I started with a piece of watercolour card then inked up an acrylic block with Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks, spritzed it with water then pressed it onto the watercolour panel, Using the same inks, I stamped the background with IndigoBlu Collector's Edition No. 2 French Script and Creative Expressions Chicken Wire. Then black Versafine for the main stamping. The bees wings were sparkled with clear sparkle pen.
I would also like to enter this into the following challenge:
Stamping Sensations - Show Your True Colours.
It is so nice crafting and blogging again - I hope to keep it up more regularly as much as I can.
Thank you so much for visiting me and have a lovely weekend.
Take care - Christine xxx
