Happy Saturday, all! Bee-ing as it’s Saturday, it’s time for another Crazy 4 Challenges! This week’s challenge is to use bees or bugs on your card or project.
I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then, on some Ranger Watercolor Paper, I stamped Mini Hexagon Background with Gravel Gray hybrid ink and quickly heat embossed with clear detail embossing powder—the hybrid ink stays damp just long enough to get a pretty decent job of embossing done for this kind of application. Then I applied some Peerless Watercolors with a waterbrush—I was looking for a honey-from-a-beehive look, and popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape.
Next I stamped and cut several bees from LJD Fly-By Friends and LJD Fly-By Friends Die-namics with Black Licorice hybrid ink on more watercolor paper and colored them with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and popped them up on foam as well. The stamped part of the sentiment was stamped with Gravel Gray hybrid ink on Stone Gray card stock cut with Blueprints 25 Die-namics and adhered to the card front. I cut three copies of Thanks & Hello Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock, adhered them together with spray adhesive, and adhered it to the card front—and was pretty much done!
