Queen Bee

Bees are such busy creatures and there are humans like that too.  This is to appreciate such a person.

An inked stencil printed onto white card with Distress inks in blues and yellows, then spritzed to make it watercolour.    The diecut frame sits on top.  The tag is white card smooshed with Distress inks, then die cut, stamped and attached with 3D foam.   The sequins link the two areas.

Stencil: Rosie's Studio
Tag die:
Stamp:  Magazine freebie
Stitched Frame die: Dienamics
Also: Distress Inks, sequins, ribbon

I love the colors of the rays. You get the coolest stamps from magazines. I like the queen bee. Great card.

I was a busy bee today. Literally cleaned the entire house and the Mister trimmed all the palm trees. In the heat of the day. We've been getting a heat index around 108 degrees. It's been terrible. [Bunny]
