Bee Card (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)

Happy Friday! :o)

On Wednesday, May 29th, 2019, was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this mini square Bee Card. :o)

For my card I used an ADORABLE Kitty Bee Designs 'Bumblebee Cutie' digital image. This is a third card I made using this image. You can find first two one here and here. :o)

How I made my card....

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

Next day, I colored the bumblebee in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the bumblebee and traced edges with a black marker.

Then I ink blended a white square cardstcok panel with Distress Inks Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber. I splattered the panel with water, dried it and repeated the process (ink blending, splattering). I completely dried the panel and printed the bumblebee on the panel.

Next up was die cutting. I went with inlay die cutting technique. I used a honeycomb die and die cut two pieces in a white cardstock paper. Then I die cut two honeycombs in the panel.

With all parts ready, I assembled the card. I glued the panel on a white top folded square card base. Then I glued all die cut pieces in place. I drew lines that I cut away with a black fine liner and glued watercolored pieces on the panel, over the bee printed on it (paper piecing).

As a finishing touch, I drew white dots on bumblebee's wings and panel with a white pigment ink and my card was finished. :o)

Card measurements: 86 mm x 86 mm (3 3/8" x 3 3/8")
