MailART Monday: Bee Happy

Bee Happy

A little ode to the bees on today's MailART Monday with stamps all from Lost Coast Designs. I made a little notecard and ATC for a swap over at Art Chicks Studio facebook group.

Bee Happy
The ATC swap was centered on a resist technique and I stamped the doodles circle in opaque white colorbox ink, heat set and colored the card with distress ink and a blending tool. A classic resist technique. The bees are stamped over the card, wings glazed with crystal lacquer and added some color to the body. Stamped the dictionary words on it randomly and sprayed some mica sprays over it. The outline is tarnishes brass distress stains and matted on black card stock. Simple yet very effective :)

Bee Happy
The little card was done the same way with addition to "Bee Happy" letter stamping.

Bee Happy
The yellow and blue colors make me very happy! A hint of spring time to come :)

  1. Thank you for your always sooooo beautiful cards!

    Dabbling in(between) the fountain pen hobby, scrapbooking and colouring (mixed media not so much, but this comes out of my bad trait of perfectionism, I admire people who are able to let loose!) I really appreciate your colourful postings. These always brighten my day ;-)

  2. Mooi die lichte resist! En weer een hele mooie set! Groetjes, Gerrina
