Hello, fellow card makers and happy Tuesday (although it feels like Monday to me)!! I hope those of you who celebrated Independence Day in the US had a nice, relaxing long weekend!! Since the holiday fell on a Sunday this year, my husband had Monday off and we had an extra day…gotta love that!!
I began by stamping the flowers and bee in the Wildflowers Stamp Set onto white cardstock with Bee Creative Intense Black Ink, then I colored them with Copic markers. Next, I cut them out with the Coordinating Honey Cuts.
For the background, I blended Mermaid Lagoon and Twisted Citron Distress Inks onto a panel of Bristol smooth cardstock, then blended them together with a damp paintbrush. Once the panel was dry, it was trimmed slightly and the die-cut flowers and bee were adhered toward the bottom with a combination of Bee Creative Precision Glue and foam adhesive. The excess stems were trimmed off the bottom of the panel and it was then adhered to a white A2 card base. The sentiment, from the My Favorite Flower Stamp Set, was white heat embossed onto vellum and cut out with the Coordinating Die. It was adhered toward the top, center with vellum adhesive.
I absolutely love these flowers and can’t wait to use them on more projects!!
Thanks so much for dropping by today!! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!!
