I chose a bee theme for this card, inspired by one of my new goodies... the hexagon hive !! I die cut my card and trimmed it to size, (I saved the hexagons it cuts out to layer on selected areas for a bit of added dimension.) I then stamped my little bees and water coloured them using my ink pad and a brush. I used my glitter pen to create a nice finish on the wings. i hand cut each of my bees out to allow me to bend them and stick them on for a 3D effect. the banner stamped with the sentiment was the final element i made before the card could be glued together for my take on the sketch.
