Busy Bees

Hello Everyone!

Today I’m playing along with theme challenge at The Paper Players.

When I saw the theme, I immediately thought of my Hero Arts Bees and Flowers Fancy Die set that I got last year, used once or twice and promptly forgot about!! Time for them to shine again!

I watched Nichol Spohr’s colouring tutorial for this set and decided to colour my bees using my Nuvo alcohol markers. I’m not very skilled with alcohol markers but I particularly like how Nichol coloured the wings and I was delighted when mine looked ok! I didn’t feel my yellow markers were bright enough so I used my beloved Twinkling H2O paints for that part of the bees. I also used a mixture of markers and Twinklings on the flowers.

I very lightly stamped my card base with a honeycomb stamp and added some splatters before arranging my flowers and bees.

I added a Tim Holtz sentiment and a few sequins to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
