Happy Bee-day

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a bee-themed card!


I started by stencilling the honeycomb background with Distress Oxide and then I die-cut the white panel with a stitched rectangle.  I stamped the flowers, fussy-cut, and adhered.  I stamped the bees, coloured with markers, fussy-cut, adhered, and applied Stickles to the wings. I heat-embossed the sentiment in white on a black scrap, matted onto a yellow scrap, and then adhered with foam tape.

Clear stamps:  STAMPlorations Blossoms Spray 1 (flowers), Joy Clair Bee Kind (bees), Pink and Main Bee Happy (sentiment)
Die:  Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangles
Stencil:  Honey Bee Stamps Hexi Background
Ink:  Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide, Gina K Designs Amalgam, Versamark
Other:  Ranger White embossing powder, Stickles Diamond

Stunning card, Kitty. I love how you've left the main image uncoloured - very effective. xx

I love the color of the yellow ink you've used. I find some yellows so bright. I love how you left the flowers uncolored. A great use of restraint - which I don't have when it comes to card making!!!!

What a fun card! Kitty! Love your bee theme. Just bee-utiful! Love how you used the stencil for the pop of color but left the flowers neutral. Great idea. Thanks for the inspiration!

That floral design left in black over the honeycombs allows your bees to really pop! I love everything about this :)

It is stunning how you left the flowers uncolored. I guess I'm too fussy I would have had to color them. I never think outside the box like you did. Awesome job. Thanks for sharing with STAMPlorations Stencil challenge.
