Bees love flowers

Here are another two samples from the Honey Bee stamps. I decided to collect together a selection of flower stamps from CB and create small scenes. I cut Nestabilies shapes from copier paper and use them as masks. For the first card I used Mustard Seed Distressed Ink and the second used Milled Lavender around the edges. Leaving the mask in place stamp the flowers and leaves.



The thistles and ferns were coloured with various greens.
I coloured the lavender with pens so that the heads were purple and the stalks green.



Remove the masks and stamp the bees and sentiment.
I'm sure we all have flower stamps that these bees will go perfectly with.

Happy stamping and thanks for visiting
Debbie
