Bee Awesome #2

Good Morning everyone, thank you for the amazing comments on my bee card , today im sharing the 2nd card i made with the awesome bee.  This time its a shaker card.

Card 7x7" approx. I die cut a hexagon from patterned paper and then die cut the tim holtz mixed media die from the top right, i backed with acetate and foam tape, i filled with micro beads, glitter & sequins and backed with another piece of paper from the same paper pad.  This i mounted onto kraft card and then my white base card - all cut into a hexagon.

I stamped the bees onto white card and water coloured with distress inks, adding a touch of yellow wink of stella pen over the top for some shimmer.  I stamped the wings onto vellum, cut them all out, attached the wings to the bodies and arranged on my card front with glue gel.  Stamped words cut out and mounted onto paper to finish. 

 Showing it stood up

Close up on my shaker element.

Items used:
Pink Ink stamps - 'bee-utiful'
Tim Holtz Sizzix Mixed Media corner die
Bobunny 6x6 paper pad -'Autumn Song'
Wink of stella pen - yellow
Distress inks - lemonade, ripe persimmon, black soot
Kraft card

Thank you all for stopping by and i hope you enjoy the rest of the week. Stay Safe. Emmax
