As Spring starts to arrive, the new challenge over at Kitty Bee’s Aloha Friday is “Things With Wings”. We were very lucky to be sponsored by Dilly Beans, and I had a great time playing with this little bee image!
There are actually three bees included in the set, the other two are side on views of the bee. However, for my card, this little fellow was just perfect! I printed him in a circle and cut it all on the Silhouette. I coloured the image with Pro-Markers, then ran a little Scattered Straw Distress Ink around the edge of the circle. For the honeycomb panel on the right hand side, I embossed an off-cut of white card with the Darice Honeycomb folder and then dragged the Scattered Straw Distress Ink across it until I had reached the depth of colour I wanted – I love the way there’s still a little white edge inside each of the hexagons!
For the banner, I used the print and cut option on the Silhouette again; the font is Minya Nouvelle….my latest favourite! For the black and yellow mat on the banner, I cut the shape from a piece of Dovecraft Back To Basics Monochrome stack, then ran my Gold Pro-Marker over the pattern to colour in the white bits and make it more bee-like. The final layer of paper is from the Studio Calico Snippets collection.
I based the layout on the current challenge over at Seize The Sketch:
