Bee Happy!


Hi There! Here is a card I made recently using the Bee Monarchy stamps from Bee Crafty. 

Here is what I used:

Bee Monarchy stamps and matching dies

Typewriter Alpha stamps

Tag dies

Ecoline pens Pastel Blue and yellow ochre

Watercolour card

Corrugated kraft card

Distress oxide inks in Wild Honey and Vintage photo

Pretty gets gritty explosion powder in Eros

6x6 Inkable Honeycomb multi

Black ink  - I used versafine clair

Gilding wax

coordinating ribbon

6x6" Kraft card

5.5x5.5" ivory card

I began by stamping and die cutting the bee and the word Bee onto a scrap of  watercolour card. 

I also cut a label from the corrugated card

I coloured the bee and added a little gilding wax to the corrugated tag. 

I stuck the bee and the word to the tag with sticky pads and added a scrap of coordinating ribbon.
I used a blending brush to apply distress oxide inks through the inkable onto the ivory cardstock

I mixed a little of the explosion powder with water and splattered it across the inked background

I stamped the word Happy, using the Typewriter Alpha onto a die cut tag (not Bee Crafty), layering it on to kraft card.
Finally I matted the background onto the Base card, then attached the tags using sticky pads. 

Tomorrow Bev and Sam are on the Craft Store with some wonderful new stamps at 1pm. Here is a little sneaky peek!

 Thanks for looking!

This is a beautiful bee image and the word to go with it and great fussy cutting Sally and looks wonderful on that corrugated kraft card tag, also the bright and pretty honeycomb background looks perfect with the added shimmer from the splattered explosion powder mixture. A gorgeous card! x
