Hunny Bee Card (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)


Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this Hunny Bee Card. :o)

I CASEd my own card that I shared recently here on my blog. I went with same design, layout, background and color scheme, but I used different bee image. You can find my CASEd card here.

For my today's card I used a SUPER CUTE Kitty Bee Designs 'Honey Bee' digital image.

I printed the bumblebee on a thick watercolor paper and left it dry through the night to prevent ink smearing while coloring.

I colored the bumblebee in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the bumblebee leaving thin white border around it.

Next up was a background. I heat embossed in white hexagon pattern from Jane's Doodles 'Geometric Patterns' stamp set (which is discontinued) on a thin watercolor paper panel. On my CASEd card I went with watercoloring, but this time I went with ink smooshing technique to color the background. I used Distress Inks Mustard Seed ad Fossilized Amber. I added couple layers of color, drying them between, until I was satisfied.

Lastly, I assembled the card. I glued the background panel on a 2 mm thick foam sheet square and glued it on a top folded 3.5" x 3.5" (89 mm x 89 mm) white card base. I glued 2 mm foam on the bumblebee and glued it on the card. I glued a white cardstock paper panel inside the card to make it thicker and more stable (because front of the card is quite heavy) and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions: 89 mm x 89 m(3.5" x 3.5")
