BEE Happy ...

Happy Friday Everyone!

I so excited today!  
I've once again been asked to guest design for the CropStop Blog.  YEAH!!

Here's what I've created using products they carry in their store.


It all began by creating my focus flower which is 'Daisy Delight' by Memory Box.


I've die cut it twice from white card stock then colored the popped out pieces of the one panel using Spectrum Noir alcohol Marker CT4 and then colored second panel which will be my outline piece using Spectrum Noir alcohol Marker JG1.

 After coloring, I die cut my framing panels using the 'Wrapped Stitched Frames' also by Memory Box.  I've used the largest frame for my actual frame but used the next size down 'inset' to adhere my flower to.  Once I had the outline adhered I then pieced in the yellow flower petals.

 Next came my background panel.  I wanted to use coordinating colors with my focus flower so I used Tim Holtz distress oxide inks and watercolor paper.  I actually used Lucky Clover & Amber but as you can see where the green & yellow combined, I ended up with blue!  It happens!  Duh!  LOL
I used Scotch ATG adhesive to adhere my background panel to my white card base.  
Then, started building my layers.  Next came the large frame  ...



Then my focus flower panel which was popped up using mounting tape for added dimension.


Lastly, I added this adorable little 'Bee' by Elizabeth Craft.
It too was popped up using mounting tape.


Here's a peek at the inside using the frame that was cut from the second largest frame in the set (used the inside cut out portion for the focus of my card) and the sentiment/bee are from Inky Antics.
