This card is for the Gingersnap Creations GC93: Chestnut Challenge - Get To Work.
I watch all the wildlife in my garden as I work and bees are always at work too so they seemed a good starting point. As I began this project, the sun was shining and my window was open and a big fat bumblebee buzzed in on his travels so it sealed my idea.
I stamped the background with a honeycomb pattern and inked the edge with distress ink. The flowers were stamped with VersaMagic chalk inks to give a really soft finish. The bees are Stampotique and the large bee is 3D mounted for depth. I painted the wings with rock candy and a little bit of sparkle.
I fixed the title into a metal plate and stamped the works in amongst the blooms. The task for the bees is the make honey, unfortunately, for most of us, it's to make money!!
