My Favorite Things...WSC Challenge # 2...Bee Mine!


Hello carfty friends! Just a quick post tonight to share the card I made for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge with Sketch #2! I am really enjoying the sketch challenges at MFT this year. It really is so much easier to join in the fun now.

So, I wanted to use this sweet We R Memory Keepers paper called Be My Valentine but then I didn't think I had a MFT valentine stamp to use, until I remembered that I had this cutie PI girl called Honey Bee and she comes with several different sentiments, making it a very versatile set. I really loved Michele Boyer's card with the MFT Ladybug PI Girl and her non-traditional, red and brown, colour choice. You can see her gorgeous card here. So, I thought I would colour my wee Honey Bee PI Girl in yellow and brown and it also went well with the paper. I coloured the MFT Honey Bee PI Girl with my Copics and cut the image out with my long rectangle Nesties, embossed and left the image in the die and inked with Spun Sugar Distress ink. I also added some sparkle with a Sakura Clear Stardust pen a spread it around with my finger. I added two little dots to her antenna with my black Viva Decor pearl pen.

I made an easel card and I used my Tim Hotlz Tonic Distressing tool to rough up the edges of the brown American Crafts cardstock. I added some pearls and American Crafts ribbon and on the bottom sentiment panel I added a pearl heart that I coloured with my brown Copic marker.   

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! Off now to watch my monday night TV show, Castle...it's my fave...I think Castle is so dreamy and he cracks me up, he, he, he!

Stunning - I was off on a detour looking at these stamps. Quite different. Love your colour combination & the colouring makes her body so rouded. Hope you enjoyed your TV.
