Baby Bee

     Hello friends!  It's the second Thursday of the month so it's time for a new challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil.  Our hostess with the mostest is our sweet Nela Who wants to see "Summer Flowers".  All the rain we've gotten in the past month or so was lovely for the plants, but now I'm afraid the heat is going to get them all.
     For my card I have used Mo's "Baby Fairy Bee".  I used a base of brown bazzill and clipped the corners with a ticket corner punch.  I used a Martha Stewart corner punch on the first layer of DP.  It was looking pretty plain so I pulled out a chicken wire template and some modeling paste to add some texture plus it looks like honeycomb.  The flowers were made from a Memory Box die.  I cut the flowers out of white and then used some Distress Stain and ink to color them.  A little vellum for the sentiment and butterflies to echo little bees wings.  I love the Wink of Stella glitter pens but you can never see the pretty shimmer in photos.  The wings are quite sparkly IRL.

Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R30 
hair E35, YR23, Y21

     "Summer Flowers" is an easy peasy challenge so come play along with a Mo's image for your chance at a $5.00 gift voucher from Mo's store.  She has some brand new images in there if you haven't visited lately.
