Wild and Free Bee Tag

Hi There! Thought I would show you how I made this mdf tag for Bee Monarchy day. 
I began by painting the MDF tag using acrylic paints. Some of these were shimmer/metallic and some were not. I painted them onto the tag blending the edges.  

Next I used black gesso through the full honeycomb inkable and added a little more around the edges.
Once this was dry I added some stamping using the crowns and honeycomb stamps from the bee Monarchy set using a brown versafine Clair ink.
on a scrap piece of card I stamped the bee 3 times with versafine clair black ink. I coloured them with ecoline pens and cut them out using the die set
I stamped a sentiment from the small words set and added that and the bees to the tag using ultra thick gel medium. 
Here is the finished tag with a little yellow ribbon though. 
I used:
Dylusions paint in lemon Zest and Tangerine dream
Dylusions shimmer paint in Pure sunshine
Versafine Clair in black and brown

Thanks for looking!

I'm just imagining the honey being the same colour as the background of this gorgeous tag Sally. I love it.
