Welcome! - I finally had some time this week to stamp. Seems like this month has been a super busy one so it's always nice when I get a chance to make a card.
I'm sharing this for the current Fusion Challenge: Bee Kind
and also for NBUS#25
Here is the card I created for this challenge:
The stamp/die set is from Sizzix and can be found HERE - I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby.
Details: Card Stock: Whisper White (I'm going to miss this when my supply runs out) Bermuda Bay and a retired piece of Barely Banana (SU) The designer paper was also purchased at HL. I loved the splatters and the water color look.
I stamped the Bee with Memento Tuxedo black ink, colored the bee with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol. - I added a clear glitter (Art Institute) and cut the bee and the roses out with the dies that came with the set. The roses were mounted on top of the original bee with foam tape. Then the entire bee was also popped up with the foam tape.
The sentiments were stamped with MTBlack ink on Barely Banana Card Stock and cut with the dies.
I added a piece of retired SU cream grosgrain ribbon and some gems (unknown source) to complete the card.
I hope you like my interpretation of the sketch and the inspiration photo.
