Bee Monarchy Samples


Hi There! Did you manage to join us for the Bee Monarchy relaunch on Tuesday? These are some of the samples I made. The first pair of cards I made during my live. 
This one used the scripted bee stamp in the background and the stitched borders.
I painted the MDF using dylusions paints and added black gesso through the Honeycomb full inkable
This older sample was stamped and stitched, and the background was sprayed through the Honeycomb multi inkable.
This was another older sample using honeycomb multi, Scripted Bee and the 4" hexagon easy frame.
I created backgrounds for these pages using a piece of catalyst paper and scribble sticks on the left and dylusions sprays painted on, on the right. Both of the bees on these journal pages were stamped on Bee Crafty stamping tissue.
Texture discs and catalyst papers made the background on this sample.

This was my blog post last week, so there is a step by step for it. 

For my live on Wednesday I had a play with Alcohol inks. I used a technique I learned from Kate Crane in my Grafix mixed media journal.
The background on this card also used the same alcohol ink technique on Dura-lar matte.

What amazing samples Sally, and you were obviously inspired by the beautiful bees. Such wonderful colours and lots of super stencilling and stamping, and the embroidered bee with some fantastic stitching. x
