Bee-you-tiful

Hello dear friends,

I was very glad when my cousin messaged me to make a card for her friend! Wow..I have an order... And she put the charge on me to choose  how the card would be.

I had recently been on the blog hop by Milka Gubo - To-bee-or-not-to-bee and I was so inspired by the cause and actually I love bees too... who doesn't love little bees? I also wanted to use the masking technique shown by Linda Langes (check it Here ). Also, I saw a couple of challenges with animal as their subject.. so I finally had a rough sketch!

I started with the floral stamp, stamping two different flowers on post- it notes and fussy cutting them to use as masks. Then, after adding desired leaves around the flowers, I coloured them with water colour pencils.


You see two colours - pink and red (is the mask I used).. because I wasn't sure if pink was looking good. Found red flowers looked better.  So I painted my flowers red. I quilled two bees with 5mm strips and put googly eyes on them (I can put googly eyes everywhere :P ) and made a hive with a 5 mm strip too.



I wrote Bee - You - tiful with pentel touch brush pen for the sentiment.

And this is what I had.. When I put together all the elements!


I hope my beautiful sister's beautiful friend likes this card.
