It’s spotlight time over at Kitty Bee! For this month’s post, I’ve used Birthday Bee, one of three cute little bees included in the Bumble Bee Set #1.
The background was created using a honeycomb stencil and some Scattered Straw Distress Ink. I was careful to keep the shading varied so create depth to the background. The little bee was coloured with Pro-Markers and then mounted on a hexagon of white cardstock which was also liberally doused in Scattered Straw and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks, then popped on some 3D pads. Finally, the sentiment was printed directly onto vellum, then I smudged some more Distress Ink on the back of the vellum, to avoid smudging the sentiment too. I attached it with a metal brad and a couple of tiny dots of Glossy Accents to stop it flapping too much – I left the end free to curl up though!
Head over to Kitty Bee to add some honey loving bees to your image stash! They’re so cute, you won’t be able to stop yourself 🙂
