The beautiful Dragonfly Dreams bundle set includes a sweet little bumblebee – I love how realistic he looks! I have made many dragonfly cards but decided it was time to use the bee. I made the honeycomb background by brayering ink onto the raised side of the Honeycomb Embossing Folder then closing the folder and giving it a good rub to transfer the ink.
Added some splatters and lace images to my panel, then roughed up the edges before adhering it to my card.
I stamped and die cut the bee. Sponged his wings.
Then I sponged a scrap of white with ink and stamped the body only.
I cut out the body and attached it to the wing piece.
I changed the color of my baker’s twine by setting the twine on the ink pad. Set a sponge on top and pull the twine to recolor it.
I think the rest is fairly straight forward. Not that it shows in the picture but I added a bit of sparkle on the bee with clear Wink of Stella.
And, of course, a matching envelope.
