Bee Happy!

It's been quite a while since I shared some inspiration with you here on the Creative Blog, moving house and major surgery has really thrown a spanner into my creative time but I am happy to be sharing a less is more card with you today, holding back to temptation to add some doodling.

Here is my card...

Card ingredients!

Tando Creative Distorted Hive Mask 
Stampotique Big Bee 
Distress Inks ~ Spiced Marmalade & Mustard Seed 
I placed the stencil directly onto my card and sponged through the stencil using Distress Inks. The bee image was stamped directly onto the card first of all using the second stamped images (so it appears fainter) and then once onto spare cardstock so that I could cut out the bee and add as a 3D embellishment.

I picked up a little of the Distress Inks left on the stencil with a paint brush to colour in the bee and generated a sentiment on computer. Something I'm going to try and bee a little more often! ;-)

Have a great weekend. Gez

A wonderful card, really cool background & then to do the bee 2 ways, adding dimension looks fab too! I too am trying the "less is more" with cards, it's not easy. You did a great job. So pleased you are feeling better & creative again. Tfs ☺
