Fun with Bees!

Good morning! I hope that you had a great Easter weekend. We sure did! I had some time to make a few cards besides my Clear Dollar Stamps May Sneak Peeks this weekend, and have several birthday cards to make for April. Which is what I'm sharing today...one of the April birthday cards that will go out this month to a friend.

I hadn't inked up these Stampendous bees for a very long time, so I had an idea for a layout and color scheme when I grabbed the stamp. I used my Scor-Pal to create the lattice-scoring on the bottom half of the card. It really gives it great texture along with the Cuttlebugged "Dots & Spots" Embossing Folder that I used on the upper half of the card. I wanted to create a clean, crisp and cutie pie type card. Here's the deets:

Stamp Sets Used: Stampendous "Bee Happy" Stamp Collection
Cardstock & Papers: K&Co. Remake "Berry Pinks" Mat Pad, Colormates Cardstock, Paper Trey White Cardstock

Copic Sketch Markers: Y15 Cadmium Yellow, YG03 Yellow Green, RV23 Pure Pink
Coloring Medium: Watercoloring
