Worker Bee

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!!
