I know this isn't my usual time of day for blog posts but I have an appointment with the dentist before work this morning (euchhh!) so I have a little more time before I have to leave today. So I thought I'd share a card I made last night.
When I saw the latest challenge at CASology had the cue card 'Bee', I knew straight away what I wanted to use. A while ago I purchased some digis from Pink Petticoat, many of which I haven't yet had the chance to use, and one little set is called Buzzy Little Bees.
So here's what I did with it...
I printed off the digi (I decided on the 'bee-lated' image and sentiment, its always handy to have one of these!) and cut it out with an oval die. I coloured the bee and flower with Promarkers and then added a touch of Wink of Stella to the bee's wings - yes, I've finally purchased the famous little pen and I love it! I then picked out the red of the flower and cut some deep red cardstock with the co-ordinating scalloped oval die to frame the image. Next I used a honeycomb embossing folder (I used the de-bossed side of the card) and cut away a section which I adhered to my base card at an angle, and then mounted the framed image over the top on 3D foam.
