Beelieve In Yourself

Hello. Popping in to share a card using a new stamp set from Claire Manning Creative for the current challenge at Festive Friday. When I saw Claire demonstrate this on her YouTube channel – I just had to have it:

This is a layering stamp set called ‘Buzzing‘, and I thought it would go perfectly with one of previously made Distress Ink smooshed backgrounds – and I like how it turned out – all that rich yellow and that stark black….

The body of the bee is stamped in Versafine Black Onyx to get that deep and dark black, and then the wings were stamped. Usually, you stamp the yellow, then the black – but as I had yellow on the background panel – I didn’t need to do that.

And as we all could do with some encouraging words every now and again – then this sentiment from Clearly Besotted fitted the bill nicely – from one of their bee stamp sets.

I may have to play with this the way Claire did on her YouTube video – using a spray of water on the layers to give a water-colour effect – watch this space!
