The Flower Challenge # 21 - Use a previous challenge

I used our "Blue and Yellow" challenge for my card this month. I bought a few lovely stamp sets recently from Polkadoodles. I used two of the flower stamps from the "Delicate Doodles" set and the bees from their "Bee Nice Sentiments" set.
I stamped the flowers on some mixed media paper in black archival and stamped the bees too. I coloured the flowers in using Spectrum Noir sparkle pens and a waterbrush. Once dry, I added some dots to the flowers with a white gel pen. I stamped the bees on a scrap of card and after colouring them in cut them out. I mounted the panel on a piece of yellow card and used foam tape to add it to a 6x4 card blank. I added the bees, only gluing them down under the bodies so that their wings had some dimension. To finish I added some stickles to their wings.
I hope you enjoy playing along with us this month, and enjoy looking back over our previous challenges. We'll have some more inspiration for you halfway through the month x

  2. Beautiful, I was thinking Blue and Yellow too, might go there with next part. Love those flowers so pretty and the doodle dots perfect look. Buzzy bees with glitter wings so cool, my buzzy bees end up looking like buzzy monsters so they just disappear off the scene. Love your card mf.
