Just Bee-Cause

I've been seeing "bees" everywhere on cards. So when I saw the latest release at Simon Says Stamp, I had to get it. Aren't these bees cute!?  I added some Ink on 3 liquid pixie dust on the wings for some shimmer and shine.

Just a Note from my Sandbox

For this challenge, we are to use a stencil. I got out my new "Sandbox" stamp set by InkyStamper and stamped him on Bristol cardstock and watercolored him with my Koi watercolors.

You are so G-llama-rous

Happy 1st Day of Summer. I don't know about where you live, but it has felt like summer here for several weeks in the Carolina's. Brutus Monroe released a bunch of new stamps last week and when I saw llamas, well, I had to have them. They jumped into my cart and he shipped them the very next day. They are called "Llama Friends" and I think they are the most real looking llamas and I just love them!! I colored this guy using my Copic markers and I made the stencil background using my Distress Oxide inks - Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry. I used some Nuvo Crystal drops on him too.

I am so happy to have you as a friend

This was a fun background to make. I saw a challenge at Splitcoast and had to try it. You just take your Oxide Ink stamp pads and stamp them directly onto your watercolor paper. I used these colors together so I could combine it with this challenge at The Card Concept.
