Bee Happy Socially Distant Hug!
Happy Monday….today I am sending you a Socially Distant Hug! I think we are all finding fun and creative ways to check in on others and let them know we care. I spent a couple days making 16 of these cards for Friends and Family. The image just makes me smile. Normally I never make multiples of cards anymore, preferring to spend my time coloring the image instead of mass producing the cards. This one was just too cute and an easy color.
I stamped my sentiment in Versafine and heat embossed it with clear powder. Do yourself a favor and invest in a good heat tool. I use the new Wagner one, you will find it in the shopping list. It melts the powder quickly without warping the paper!
Is this not the cutest bee? She is a digital stamp from a cool Etsy store called 2 Cute Ink. She also has a blog by the same name. Check her out, support a small business! Look at her little arms, they are clearly doing the virtual hug! There is a tiny drop of Woodland Green Nuvo drops on the bow, and a teeny tiny bit of Dandelion Yellow on her tail.
