Hello everyone! I had the honor to be called to serve another period as a member of Honey Bee Stamps – Social Media Design Team ( Jan – July 2018) and I’m thrilled to be able to keep sharing ideas and inspirations using beautiful Honey Bee supplies.
My intention was to create a spring scene or perhaps an Easter card using the bunnies and the bushel stamps. I was dreaming with a light pink /blue/ yellow background but I couldn’t resist stamping apples instead of flowers or anything else at very last minute. 🙂
You can check original stamps’ artwork below…
I used masks to stamps all the images on one single layer of “Bristol paper”.
To easily create masks I stamp the images using Versafine ink on printer paper and I sprayed the back with Stick & Spray temporal adhesive by Crafter Companion.
I added color using Arteza Real Brush water -based markers. It was the first time I tried the pens. They come in a wide variety of very vibrant and beautiful colors, the price is irresistible but I think I really need to try them more and get used to their shape and their ink flow ( they have larger tips and barrel in comparison with other similar markers I have in my stash ).
I used Bristol Smooth paper and water brushes to apply the color, to blend it and reduce the ink pigmentation.
I also used a blending tool to apply Distress Oxide Fossilised Amber ink to the background and I splattered with water.
I added white and black dots and little bows to make a feminine card.
That’s all for today. I hope you like the video, the supplies and the card.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
