Bee your own kind of beeautiful ...

Hello there! Well I am showing a piece over at Countryview challenges today - I wanted to log the details here of how I made my card.


I started with the newly arrived stamp set from kay-carley and using archival ink stamped onto watercolour card.


Next I played with brushos adding colour and spritzing with water....


I then used distress pens to sharpen up the image a little ....


Then I cut down the piece to size for my card - the remainder will be used at a later date!


I then stamped, coloured and cut out the bees from the stamp set and added them to the card - I also added more swirly foliage and the sentiment too...


Such a great stamp set - you will be seeing lots of this one I know!!!!

I would like to enter this into stamping sensations challenge-anything-with-flowers

Hope you can join us at Countryview challenges where the theme is 'Things with Wings!'. 

Big hugs
