Honey Bees (by Veronica)

Good morning everyone, it is another beautiful day here and I am sharing some of the samples for the last show using the honey bee stamps - I haven't seen many bees around this year though...
 My first is a simple tag, coloured with Distress Inks - Lemonade in the centre and Hickory Smoke round the edges. The foxglove, words and large bees were stamped using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and then coloured with watercolour pencils.
I added a bit of sparkle to the wings with a clear Wink of Stella pen, but it doesn't really show up.

For the card I created a background using the honeycomb stamp and a honeycomb stencil, and various shades of yellow and orange Distress Inks, spritzed with water to soften the edges.
The foxglove was stamped on the left using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, masked with Pebeo Drawing Gum then stamped again using Smokey Gray Versafine Ink. The bees were all stamped with the black ink. The foxgloves were coloured with Distress Ink and a waterbrush, and a bit of colour was added to the bees and some sparkle to the wings. The background was mounted onto white card with a layer of purple card.

I will be back later in the month, with more projects to share, Vronnie.

  4. These stamps are gorgeous and I do love the bees and the foxglove in those slightly different colours on the tag Veronica, the Hickory Smoke and Squeezed Lemonade are a great combination, and then the spritzed background with the honeycomb stamp and stencil looks so pretty with the bees and foxgloves over the top, and another lovely combination of colours. x

  5. Lovely! And your colouring is gorgeous too.

  6. Beautiful creations Veronica, I love this stamp set and used them wonderfully, gorgeous designs and colours, Kate x
