Hi everyone and Happy June!!! I have to admit that when I first saw the Honey Bee I wasn’t sure I would like this set… the bees were a little too realistic looking for me. When I decided that I wanted it because I really liked the honeycomb die and hive, it was out of stock. As soon as the stamp set became available I purchased it and I am so happy I did. I have to say THIS SET IS ONLY AVAILABLE UNTIL JUNE 2. This is a must have. Note the fun addition to this card…. I added honey!! Eeek I thought this was just too cute.
Here are a few other cards that I created with this fun set.
The background was done with the chicken wire embellishment as a stencil (that are no longer available) but I thought they were too cute not to use and was the closest thing I had to honeycomb. I used the Shimmer White embossing paste and the Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze ink to create the background. On the one card it shows up a bit too orange for me so I then brushed some crushed curry on the background once it dried to yellow it up a bit.
Below you can see the “honey” look a little closer. I will link to a video on how I created the honey. It was such a fun technique and I am happy how it came out. The hive was done with Crushed Curry and I used daubers to add a little Cajun Craze around the outside. I then cleaned the stamp off and added Versa Mark and clear embossing powder.
The video can be seen on my blog.
