It's Friday already?!?! This week has been pure insanity. Anywho - I was able to kill two birds with one stone and make a Honey Bee card using the colors from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge:
You can check out what the rest of the CTD team made with these colors HERE <-----click! and play along if you haven't already!
Here's what I created:
I used Honey Bee Stamps Lotus Blossom stamp, and created several masks with it from some Post It paper. I then stamped the image multiple times onto watercolor paper using black ink, masking as I went along.
I used MFT's new Extreme Black ink for my stamping - so far so good! I've only used it this one time but I can say I'm happy with the results so far! And of COURSE I had to add in some of the new Black & White Striped patterned paper - it was calling to me ;).
I then used Distress Inks to watercolor in the flowers. For my sentiments I used the Honey Bee Smile Honey Cuts die and the coordinating Smile stamp set.
After everything was adhered I added several Honey Bee Rainbow Rhinestones to finish off the front of the card.
For the inside of the card I stamped the Lotus Blossom image multiple times with the Shaded Lilac Distress Ink, then stamped another sentiment from the Smile set with black ink and that was it!

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the products have little icons below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. You can hover over the icons and it will tell you what store that link will take you to. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
I occasionally receive product for free from stores/manufacturer with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love. Everything else I purchase myself!
