"Queen Bee"......

Good morning!

I've had a play for the new challenge over at Cards in Envy - their new challenge is insects or bugs so here I am with bees!!!!

I have used a selection of the stamps in the Craft Consortium Tell The Bees set and a honeycomb pattern stencil which I have used gesso through. The queen bee has been stamped, cut out and stuck back on to give her a tiny bit of depth along with her friend to her right.

You will also notice slight hints of a crackle stamp in the background (Chocolate Baroque) and I finished a few of the honeycombs off with a slight touch of Imagination Crafts starlights.

This was quite fun to make and notice how I have moved some of the bee stamps to try and make it look like the wings are moving and fluttering so fast like little bees wings do!

Do go over and join them at Cards in Envy, remember that the card that you produce must be flat enough to fit in an envy envelope.

Hope you like this card,
Thanks for stopping by,
Leanne xx


  1. Some of my favourite inky colours Leanne and blended seamlessly, so pleased you have the CB crackle background, it's such a useful one.
