Today is challenge day on Crazy 4 Challenges and hostess Caz has asked that we put bees or bugs on our card.
The inspiration for my card came the other day when I was at my friend Frances's house, she has all her cards on display. Frances just happened to have a card using the beehive next to her one inspired by Els' technique Friday tutorials.
I wanted to inlay the honeycomb, but I found it was too hard to line up all the pieces, so I just covered a piece of white card with double sided tape. I cut a piece to size for the card front, the cut several honeycomb pieces, lining them up to cover the card front being careful not to get finger prints on the sticky double sided tape. I then added the warm diamond micro fine glitter and polished it into the card.
I then took the double sided tape off the honeycomb pieces and using saffron glitter I did the same.
I then inlaid the entwined circles that were glittered with rust and solar gold.
I then used copic pens to add different shades of yellow to the honeycomb, and finished the front with the bees with glittered wings.
Inside the card I die cut the bee hive and some glittered bees.
Supplies:Joset Designs Beehive , Honeycomb , Bee, Bee Sentiments , distressed ink warm honey, copic pens.
