Just buzzing by for this week's new card for The Challenge! It's a fun one this week! You can check out all of the details and rules HERE. This week YOU get to choose the color to add to black and white! I wanted to make a Halloween card, but decided not to, since Summer won't be around forever and I love making Summer cards! You can also see some fabulous inspiration from the other designers!
I'm going to be completely honest with you...this actually was a CHALLENGE for me! LOL! My mind just kept overthinking everything and in the end I really just got back to basics with bees! You can't go wrong with black, white and yellow bees! These cute little guys are from Reverse Confetti's The Buzz and I colored them using Copic markers and a little Wink of Stella for some added shine. I REALLY wanted to add some blue highlights to the wings, but I resisted to stay true to the rules of the challenge.
After the bees had been colored, I used the coordinating Confetti Cuts to die cut them. I used some black and white striped paper from The Paper Studio on the right hand side for some added contrast. I just love how it looks! The yellow cardstock was die cut using the new-ish To The Point Edgers Dies. I have been enjoying using them on various projects which you can see HERE and HERE.
I stamped the Bee "trails" using black ink directly onto the yellow panel and then added the bees using foam squares. I also added a black sentiment strip with the "just bee you" sentiment using white ink. A few Sparkling Clear Sequins finish it off! I hope you get a chance to play! I can't wait to see what you come up with! Thanks for buzzing by...I mean fluttering by!
