Nature's Beehive

I thought this beehive stamp by PSX would go nicely with Stampin’ Up’s Nature Walk.  I started with a piece of Naturals White paper and stamped the beehive in StazOn Black then colored it with markers and a Blender Pen.  The bee was stamped in StazOn Timber Brown and colored with Crumb Cake & So Saffron also with a Blender Pen.  I sponged all the edges with Crumb Cake.

The sentiment was inked up with VersaMark then Rich Razzleberry and embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat gun.

I added Cotton Candy Stickles to the pink flowers and Distressed Scattered Straw to the bee.  The ribbon is 3/8” Taffeta in Kraft.  I really like the botanical look to this card.

Hi Donna
Wow, this is a fantastic botanical card. Wish you lived closer so you could teach some of our card workshops. I'll have to show what I've been making although they look pretty dull compared to your masterpieces.
