Just Bee-Cause

I am really liking these bee stamps!!  I do love to color--but sometimes I want something quick.  With just a little bit of coloring these bees are DONE!

I colored this one with Prismacolor markers--an EASY image for beginners.  I soaked the area with the yellow--added some yellow-orange and orange low lights.  Then I shaded the wings a bit with two VERY light grays--DONE!

CC200-Just Bee-cause

The sketch for this card is from the Mojo Monday Blog--Mojo Monday #68.  I am a major fan of the Mojo Monday sketches--but I haven't gotten to them in QUITE a while.  But I made it today!!!

The colors come from the SCS Color Challenge--CC200.  Brilliant Blue is NOT a "Go To" color for me--but the brightness of it works.

Materials Used:

  • Stamps: Large Going Bee and sentiment; Weave Background; All from Starving Artistamps;
  • Paper: white, Brilliant blue, garden green, pumpkin pie (SU!); lighter blue--Bazzill; DP-Paper Studio
  • Ink: Palette Noir, Peeling Paint & Spiced Marmalade (Tim Holtz); Ballet Blue-Craft (SU!) for sponging;
  • Accessories: buttons, markers, dies, ribbons, sponge, hole punch

Okay my goal for this week is all 7 weekly Challenges--(I still have to go back and do the Featured Stamper).  I want to start this year off stamping!!

Thanks for stopping by!
