Bee Happy

Today's card was a fun one to create.
I used a couple of new stencils for February from A Colorful Life Designs called
I also used an older stencil called Buffalo Plaid.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by cutting a piece of white cardstock, placed the Double Honeycomb stencil over that and inked with some Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink.
  • I used a hexagon die to cut the stenciled panel into pieces and set aside.
  • Next, I cut another piece of white cardstock and  placed the Buffalo Plaid stencil over that.  I inked it with some Fossilized Amber DOX ink.  
  • I laid out all the little hexagon die cuts and using the Layered Bees stencil, added a bee to each of the hexagons using some Ripe Persimmon DOX ink and some Versafine Clair for the details.  
  • I added some inking around the outer edges of the hexagons and splattered with my black Posca pen.
  • I glued the Buffalo plaid background onto a 4 1/4" square card base.
  • Using some foam tape, I added the little hexagons over the Buffalo Plaid.
  • I had a piece of black shiny paper (recycled) and die cut the letters for the sentiment from that and glued them over the hexagons.

Here are the stencils I used:
