Honey Bees galore

Welcome to my blog - thank you for visiting me - I am humbled that you call by.


I made this using just the one (retired) Layers of Color set, Honey Bee.


The main image is designed to fit into a spellbinders labels 20 die cut.
 I painted the image with Twinkling H2O's, and added Kindy Glitz for the sparkle.


The sentiment was stamped onto the same parchment like yellow card as the big image, cut using a Spellbinders classic oval and  mounted over a scalloped oval cut from mulberry paper.

The background was created using the small bee image, randomly stamping it over the kraft card stock and painting them.  This was distressed and sponged, and then I added the torn mulberry paper and ribbon before mounting the images onto it.


Rhinestones were added and the the whole mounted onto a cream card base.

Thank you for visiting - may your day be blessed

What a pretty design you have come up with on the card. Your glitz is so pretty on the bees wings makes them look like the real thing glistening in the sun. Thanks for joining us at the Art Impressions challenge.
