Guest Designer: Amy Young
Hello fellow Honey Bee fans! My name is Amy Young and I’m quite excited to be wrapping up this month with a guest post here on the Honey Bee blog. If any of you are familiar with my Instagram account you will know that I am a card maker with a passion for creating fun scenes using stamps and Copic markers and I have done exactly that with the newly released Mae the Mouse set.
With some careful masking, I was able to dress Mae in her cute cover-alls and add the chocolate chip cookie in her little paws. It was the cookie that ended up inspiring the rest of the design as I could envision her having successfully raided the kitchen cookie jar. Because I had a lot of grey going on in the tile and Mae herself I chose to compliment that with a bright, sunny yellow. If you ask me, pairing grey and yellow is one of those combos you can never go wrong with. Then I decided to further the story by adding some cookie crumbs at her feet, hinting that perhaps this isn’t the first cookie Mae has enjoyed… LOL! To finish off the card I borrowed one of the sentiments from the Seasonal Sweeties set and stamped it in light grey so that it wouldn’t take away from the cute cookie thief scene that I had created.
Thanks so much for having me today!
