BEE Happy

Exciting news!

I'm thrilled to be
Guest Designer
on the

Today I have used the super cute Sherri Baldy My Besties - digital stamp - img577.
I printed the image on A5 X-Press It Blending Card, heat set then coloured with Copic markers.

I cut the frame and green layers on my craft mat from textured cardstock and adhered the layers on an A5 top folding card base.
The sentiment is a die cut, the bee is too.
I die cut the bee in black and white cardstock, coloured the stripe panels with a Copic marker.  I traced around the bee body and cut a backing panel to adhere the body and stripes too.  I traced the wings on vellum, smothered with sparkle using Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush and adhered them to the back of the bee wings.  I put a couple of foam dots under the body and popped it in place.

Here is a close up showing the sparkling vellum bee wings.

... and another couple of pics

Sending a big thank you to Karin and Holley for inviting me to be Guest Designer today.
