Bee Botanical by Sioux Jenneys

Hello everyone! It's my (Sioux) turn again and I'm here to share a card :)


1. First I stamped the bee from Oddities Plate in Versafine onyx black onto cream textured rive paper...this texture helps to add to the old print look......stamp the bee again on scrap paper...cut out and use this as your mask.
...please don't bother to cut round the fiddly legs it's not necessary ;) and don't worry it's the only mask you will be using!


2. Randomly stamp the script from Mini Ornates in Distress Ink Old Paper as a second stamping then fill in the gaps with the Music #11 Plate in Adirondack salmon (second stamping)
...it might look a bit untidy at the minute but you won't see the join shortly! LOL



3. Stamp the Sequin Waste Open background in Adirondack lemonade on the side where the bee is.
...remember your mask should still be on there.

4. Stamp the Houndstooth background in Adirondack willow on the opposite side.

5. Stamp the Daisy in Distress Ink Old Paper and distress the edges with this colour too.

6. Remove the mask and colour the bee with Distress Ink Wild Honey and Adirondack Stream using Cut and Dry Nibs.....add Diamond Stickles to the wings.
...I think the close up here will help to see the layers of stamping


7. Cut a shield from the Regal Crest die....so love that!...and stamp the sequin waste open in Distress Ink Wild Honey as a second stamping.......over stamp with the small postcard image from the Purely Random plate in Adirondack salmon and add the T!m sentiment in Versafine.......

8. Matt the botanical background onto card distressed with Wild Honey and then another distressed with Willow.
...edge all three layers with a black marker before assembly!

9. Fix a piece of ribbon and stick all three layers to the base card then pop the shield on using 3d foam or silicone and add some Prima Pearls  oh so gorgeous!



Ooh! Making that made me happy :) See you again soon!

I do love your choice of colours especially on this because obviously the bee is attracted to honey colours! It's great, so neat and so detailed too.
Luv Joanne xx
