Now, on to my card...
Flourishes, and to kick things off, they are having a color challenge: two shades of blue with a splash of yellow. You can see the beautiful inspiration photo here. For this card, using Copics, I colored a stamp from the Bee My Honey stamp set, cut it with a circle die, popped it up onto an Ironwork Accents die, and matted it with a layer of burlap, cut with a larger circle die. To keep the edges from fraying, I put a bead of Tombow glue around the edge of the burlap circle, on the back side. It never did dry completely, remaining tacky, but since I was gluing it to the card anyway, that didn't matter.
Here's a closer look at the image and the layers behind it. The embellie on the bow was originally clear. I colored it with a Copic marker.
On the inside, I stamped a sentiment, a few bees, and on the main personalization layer, I stamped a honeycomb background.
This card is pretty self-explanatory, but if you have any questions about it, just leave me a comment or an email message and I'll get back to you.
Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your week!
