Be my Honey

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I have made this card especially for you, to add a little sweetness to your day. Much too soppy for me to give my husband, haha.

The bee stamp is from Prima’s Stamp-n-add “Moth Wings”. There were 2 designs in the set, 2 bodies and 2 wings that you stamp separately. After stamping it out, I added Glossy Accents to the wings, sprinkling glitter on whilst still wet. The wording I just did on the computer.

The honeycomb is from one of Tim Holtz/Sizzix “Mixed Media” die sets. I cut it out on 2-sided sticker paper. After positioning the individual pieces onto my card, I lay some mulit-coloured Gilding flakes over. The flakes stuck to the sticky shapes, then I brushed the excess off with a stiff paint brush. I didn’t realise until I’d completed the card, that I’d laid the honeycomb shapes in a different direction on the bottom, than I had on the top. Oops. No time to re-do now.

My second floral card from my travel stash (see previous post), using Penny Black stamps “Whispers” 3377K and “To say Hi” 3409E. I coloured flowers with pencils, then went over orange ones with glitter chalks. I used “Orchid” Liquid Pearls over the lavender-like stalky flowers. The background was created with Tim Holtz embossing folder “Honeycomb” from set siz657846. I coloured solid half of folder with “Shaded Lilac, Crushed Olive & Dusty Concord” Distress inks, spritzed lightly with water, then placed white card inside and pressed down, but didn’t emboss. I sponged around edge of white cards with “Seedless Preserves” and “Dusty Concord” Distress inks.
