Honey Bee



Hi Everyone!  It has been a while since I have posted a card.  Sorry for the absence.  Things have been a little crazy around here.  Today, we have an awesome collaboration with Honey Bee Stamps.

The first time I looked at the Zen Floral Stamp set, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  I used the Creative Corners to bump out my cardstock so that I could stamp the image off the edge. After I stamped on the one side, I rotated my cardstock so that I can have a mirror image.  I used various colors of Copic Markers.   


Once I was done coloring the flowers, I used a couple of light Blue Green markers for the background.   When all that coloring was done, I over-stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and used clear embossing powder.
For the sentiment I used the large Thanks die.   I cut it out several times and layered them.  The very top layer was cut with glossy black cardstock from Ellen Hutson.


For our giveaway, please leave a comment on each of the blogs listed below.  The prizes will be for a Honey Bee Gift certificate and a MISTI (choice of Mini or Original).  The winner will be posted on our Giveaway Winners page on April 7, 2017.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!
Hugs,
Iliana
