This week's featured stamper over on SCS is Sparkle. She has a great gallery and I chose this card on the left to case. I pulled out one of the cute little bees from the last High Hopes release and some Cosmo Cricket patterned paper to play along. I stamped the middle panel with a background stamp from the last release as well. The sentiment is from Papertrey's Honey Bees set. I changed the following:
- stamped image and theme
- patterned papers and colors
- changed middle panel from embossed panel to stamped panel
- added stitching
- added some layers and an extra flower embellishment by the sentiment
I added some angel wings Shimmerz to my bee's wings to make them nice and sparkly, but you can't see it in the first photo. I also sponged antique linen distress ink along the edges of my patterned papers, cardstocks, and image panel.
I have been asked in the past what copic markers I used to color images, but I rarely color the images and create the card the same day I post it. Luckily, today I remembered to snap a photo of the markers I used to color this little bee image. Sorry, I don't know the name of this bee image and can't find it on the High Hopes site. I'll have to email Tina and ask her about it.
Hope you are having a great Sunday!
