It Bee all yellow!

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Spots & Stripes.We have the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps  as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I’ve taken the most adorable Bugaboo Brats Bugs – Girl Bee by Bugaboo Stamps and coloured her up with Graph’It Markers.The flower and bobbly bits on the end of her antennae (yeah,technical I know!) have had added sparkle from a Gold Glitter Shake Marker.After shading her wings,pulling the colour out for a softer look with the Graph’It Blender Pen,I coated them in Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint.

Here’s a closer look :

The rest of the card has been kept fairly simple with hexagonal die cuts of spotty & stripey papers.I placed a greeting on top of one.This actually comes from Bees – Birthday from Bugaboo Stamps but I thought it would work well here too 🙂 I’ve added some tiny black gems to her eyes,also to the ‘i’ and exclamation mark.I can’t take credit for the idea tho’.This is just the type of detail that the inspirational and super talented Bonnie,with whom I have the pleasure of working alongside at Craft Your Passion,adds – and I usually forget!LOL XD….To complete the card I’ve stretched a length of ribbon across the bottom threaded on a chipboard button.Have to admit yellow isn’t a colour I usually go for but it suits this gal perfectly 🙂
