Bee happy

     Our bee keeper friend has already brought his baby hives down for the season so we have tons of little honey bees buzzing around here.  Thought I'd capture one and put him on a card for you.  hee hee  Actually this little bee is one of the images in Stephanie Ackerman's Love Bugs collection from Purple Onion Designs.
     I created the background with Distress inks and a TCW chicken wire stencil and then cut it out.  To add some interest I did a bit of doodling around the edge of the cut out panel with a white gel pen.

Copics Used:
bee Y19, N7, R20, R22, BG000
heart R46

     Hoping you truly are having a happy day!

Oh, my goodness, love, you've been a busy bee! No pun intended, but I've sure gotten behind over here again. This is darling! LOVE that bit of solid black edging, too! It brings the eye right to your sweet, little showcase.
