Bee strong!

Bee strong!

Hi there,

it's Tanja her and ever since I saw that cute little bee from the Gerda Steiner Designs Bee strong set I wanted to color her with rainbow colors:

  • stamp the little bee from the Gerda Steiner Designs Bee strong set with Memento Tuxedo Black and color her with Delta, Copic and Touch Twin Brush Markers and add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils
  • add highlights with a white gel pen and sparkle with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter
  • cut out a stitched panel from Bristol Smooth cardstock and create a background with Distress Oxide Inks (Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey, Salty Ocean, Lucky Clover, Wilted Violet)
  • apply some more Distress Oxide Ink Wild Honey through the ARTplorations Honeycomb Delight Mini stencil
  • cut out a spinner channel with the help of one of the My Favorite Things Circle Spinner Channels and complete the interactive set up with two layers of foam tape
  • stamp the sentiment from the Gerda Steiner Designs Bee strong set with Versamark and heat-emboss it with ZING Butter embossing powder


I hope you got inspired.

Yours,

Garden Critters Thank You Card

May 03, 2022

Hello and welcome back, it's Karen here today.  I’ve got a thank you card to share today that combines the Garden Critters and Happy Bee-day stamp sets.



I used Copic markers to colour in all the poppies and the caterpillar, and then fussy cut them out. The extra leaves are from the HoneyBee Stamps "Lovely Layers Coneflower" die set and I cut them from green cardstock and added some Distress Oxide...
