The Butterflies and the Bees

Hi everybody - I hope you are all well.

I thought it was time I posted something on my neglected blog.

I'm sharing with you a couple of pages that I made for the KCUK Deco Swap, my swap partners theme was Anything That Flies.

I used Brushos on the background and stencilled the mesh with Distress ink. I stamped the Jofy quote and small Stampotiqe bees. The large and medium Stampotique bees were stamped onto white card and coloured with Pitt pens, cut out and adhered to the page. I put stickles on the wings.

I coloured the background and stamped the butterflies with Distress ink and stamped some script. The large butterfly was stamped and die cut with a Stampendous stamp and die. The Quote is a Hobby Art stamp. The butterfly and quote were stamped onto card that had been coloured with Brushos.

Thank you for looking.
