Hello and welcome to my blog :) This is the second of my CB DT blog posts today, and it was also one of my samples for the CB 'Bee' shows on tv. I have used stamps from the Honey Bee and Silhouette Grasses sets; Distress Oxide ink - Warm Honey, Yellow Sparkle pen,Versamark ink, white embossing powder, a die, a stencil and some metal embellishments from my stash.
I stamped the honeycombe image onto a panel of Kraft card using Versamark ink and embossed it with white powder. I used the Sparkle pen to paint the Bee's and white gesso to paint the wings.
I took a honeycombe stencil and added white gesso through it onto the panel. I trimmed the bottom edge of the Kraft card to accentuate the cells. I then added yellow Sparkle pen to a piece of white card slightly bigger than the focal panel and used it to mat the panel onto. On a spare piece of Kraft card I stamped and embossed a Bee image and the words from the set. I then cut the Bee out, and cut the words into a panel.
I took a white base card and stamped the Silhouette Grasses in DO ink repeatedly on both sides. I then attached the focal panel to the card and added the Bee and sentiment panel using 3D glue gel.
I took another piece of Kraft card and die cut a large Bee. I drew around the body on white card and cut it out, then coloured it with the Sparkle pen. I attached the card to the back of the large Bee then attached that to the card.
I added a couple of metal embellishments from my stash, which echoed the honeycombe theme of the card.
This is a really simple and fresh design which I think would suit a variety of occasions, and cards for both men and women.
Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope that you've enjoyed this post and that you'll drop in again soon :)
