The flower buds were stamped in Dusty Durango and More Mustard and colored with a blender pen. Bees were stamped in StazOn Timber Brown and colored with a blender pen in So Saffron and Crumb Cake. I then used a clear glaze pen on the bee wings for dimension.
I cut a piece of the marble paper with a Nesties small petite ovals #1 die and stamped the Autumn first by loading it with VersaMark then Chocolate Chip ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder and a heat gun. This oval was layered onto a large petite scalloped ovals #1 cut from Dusty Durango paper. The edges were sponged in Chocolate Chip.
Everything was adhered to a piece of Chocolate Chip paper then mounted to a Natural White Linen card. This card is 4 1/2" x 6 1/4".
I've started my Halloween cards and I look forward to sharing them with you. This Saturday I will be offering some blog candy so be sure to stop back.
