Bee Happy!

Good morning! I have another card to share with you today using a sweet image from children's book author and illustrator, Elizabeth Dulemba. This JustRite set is called, "Bee Ride." Her images are so much fun to color! I used my Copic markers. For some reason the name of this paper is escaping me, if I find it my very messy scrap room I will post the name of it later! : ) I did some hand stitching on the circle and perimeter of the background paper. The circle and scalloped circle are from Spellbinders. When coloring her, I was sure to leave the area under the bee's wing lighter.
I stamped the flower twice, cut it out, added glitter to it, and placed a foam square between the layers. I then added it to my bow with a sentiment.
I have nothing on the ole' agenda today. Which kind of feels nice! Maybe I'll get a bit crafty today or something! Who knows! : ) Have a great day!

Michelle - your card takes my breath away. I adore the bright colors and the way the black neutralizes them. I adore the shading on the bee's head, and the way the fairy's dress is lighter as soon through the bees translucent wing. Your card makes my heart sign. Gosh I wish I could color like you. I think I'll print the photo of your card so I can gaze at it at my desk. It's THAT striking!
