Honey Bees

 Don't you just love honey bees?  Maybe not when they're buzzing around your head?  I also love the yellow and black combo.    I sort of go by busy honey bee...  So, yeah, I love honey bees!!  Both of these cards were made using a fun CTMH paper pack and a digi cut file set called Sweet As Honey.  For the first one I used a sketch from Atlantic Hearts challenge, the other was a sketch challenge my CTMH consultant offered.  For the second card I used the splatter technique and created the paper/background in the center by using a black and a gold shimmer pens, splattering them onto a plastic sheeting then dropping the paper over the top.

Thanks for looking!

Love how the splatter background turned out, and the hap-bee sentiment is great! Thanks for playing along with us at Double Trouble.

Love your bee-utiful card and the personalized background of splatters for your bee focal point. Nice interpretation of both sketches. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and AHSC.

I imagine that fun background is full of shimmer! Bees are wonderful in the yard and fun to craft with as well. :-) Thank you for sharing your projects with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Bees are valuable in our eco-system. However, that large one, I'm not sure I could cope if I saw one that large! Great choice of the lined paper and I love the hexagons under the bee. Thanks for joining us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
