Bee-utiful Friend

Welcome

Thank you for visiting - life is very busy at the moment so I am not able to visit other blogs, as much as I would like to, it's just not happening - and I am missing you all.😞

This card was made as a order - for a friend of a friend...


I started with the lovely stamp (no longer available) and the accompanying sentiment. It was gold embossed and coloured with watercolour pencils,


Then Twinkling H2O's were added to the bee body and Kindyglitz to the wings - and a touch of WoS to the flowers after fussy cutting the image.


The sentiment was die cut with a tag die and had some watercolour added to the edges.


After the image was mounted on the background using fun foam to add dimension, the edges of the card were lightly sponged with Delicata Gold Ink.


A wee bee and it's trail were stamped on the left of the inside of the card.


The sentiment was stamped with the Delicata Gold ink on the other side.
