BEE Happy card

Hello, everyone! You've probably noticed how much I love Tim's layered dies and this time I used his Layered Bee die again :) I am not a cardmaker but I like to make cards for my friends. I started with manila cardstock and used my reverse chicken wire stencil with Liquitex Light modeling paste to add some texture. I sprayed it with several glimmer mists and color wash sprays from Ranger. Also, I used glimmer mists and Lindy's stamp gang on the die. To add more texture I used the honeycomb stamp from Tim's Classics #12 stamp set on the background.  The Queen Bee stamp is from Graphic45 stamp set (I think it's the Secret Garden set, not sure). The sentiment is stamped with black Archival ink.

  1. Wow Branka! Love the fiery colours in the background! I bet this is really shimmery in real life with all the glimmer sprays! The reverse chicken wire is one of my favourites, and you really used it well here! Love the colours on your bee wings, it almost looks holographic! Gorgeous my friend! hugs :)
