Oh Beehave!

I’m a bit beehind (tee hee) posting this one as I actually made it for last weeks Let’s Get Stamping Sketchie Challenge at Craftbubble.Kathy,our GDT,set this sketch and the twist of using a new or rediscovered technique fro the comfort of her holiday home in Florida where she’s residing at the moment -lucky thing :

Before I dicovered Promarkers I used to enjoy colouring with Polychromo pencils and oil thinners (cheaper version of Sansodor),moving the colour around with a cotton bud rather than more expensive paper stumps.I just love this Bees stamp from Stamps Happen – it’s my new favourite – but then aren’t they all!!I also dug out some Metallic Rub Ons from my drawers to add round the edges.They’re a kind of wax that you apply with your finger.Lovely and messy.The papers I’ve used are K & Co and the card is from the DCWV Old World stack.I thought it would make a change to add coloured card for matting.I generated the sentiment on the computer and used the same pencils and wax on it.The flower  is die cut using Sizzix Bigz Daisies #2  from – dare I say it – Funky Foam that I came across while rummaging through old forgotten craft stuff.Ive also ‘grunged’ the petals with some morewax..The center has been cut from a Standard Circles Nestabilities then embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and  lightly sanded to emulate the daisies in the background.Corners have been cut with a mixture of Inverted Corner and Lip Pattern punches.
