Bee Yourself part deux

Better late than never!

I know I promised you this second installment last week. Life and the long holiday got in the way! Lesson learned, do not promise a card and a post unless it’s already done! Hopefully this was worth your wait!

I know you’re thinking….oh! that white high lite has a wicked smudge! Trust me, unless like this photo you are using a magnifying glass you will NEVER notice it!

Bee Yourself….. This really is a versatile set. For my second card I chose to use the sentiment “you’re the bee’s knees”. I have a wonderful friend Polly, who started beekeeping this year. So this card will bee (see what I did there?) going out to her as a thank you for the wonderful jar of honey she sent me!

Bees are super fun to color. Check out the wings, using the darker blue where they overlap gives you the illusion of seeing thru them! Plus, that Nuvo glitter gloss gives them the right amount of shine.

The background of my card was done with Altenew pan watercolors in Fresh Lemon and Warm Sunshine. They gave me the right yellows to compliment the honeycomb shapes and sentiment that were stamped in Versafine and heat embossed with Ranger Marigold embossing powder.
