When I saw these challenges were about nature, wings, and sparkle I instantly thought of a bumble bee buzzing around some beautiful blooms (paper flowers are kind of my thing…I <3 them!!). Without a suitable bee stamp in my stash I created this digi stamp (he will available as soon as I get my rear in gear and start putting stuff in my Etsy shop). The flowers were die cuts I had left over from a paper flower arrangement made previously. I stamped them with Recollections “Flower” clings, mounted on foam, and added some bling to the centers. The stems and leaves were stamped on Tim Holtz Retro Grunge paper. I love using this paper for stems and leaves because it has so many green tones in it already it saves me from having to color, plus I like the dimension the fussy cut image adds. The sentiment on the clouds was stamped with “Small Typewriter Alphabet” from Stampendous. I stamped the clouds in Colorbox chalk ink and used a Versamark pen to swirl Perfect Pearls on them. The bee is embellished with glitter and Perfect Pearls also. I added the wire antennae for the final touch. I mounted the clouds and the bee on foam to give the card a light and airy feel. I was vacillating between adding grass or not but in the end decided to go with clean and simple. I have a habit of overdoing things at times so there you have it…Thanks for stopping by! Have a BEE-you-ti-ful day!
