Welcome back friends!
My first thought was a slimline card for this sketch but between my computer and my worktable I totally forgot that point (old age ya know, lol) and began my background panel on a 4x6 watercolor sheet ... ugh! So an A6 card it is! LOL
To get the background silhouette, I knew I wanted to use a technique I had seen on one of my friends blogs where you ink up a watercolor panel using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink, THEN spritz your stamp with water and stamp down. Of course the water reacts with the oxide ink and pulls the color back off.
Silly me spritzed the stamp with too much water so I totally lost the image so I stamped the image again using a slightly darker shade of TH green oxide ink.
I reached into my scrap pile for the three horizontal panels and used one of the words from the Sue Wilson (CED5430) Friendship die set for my sentiment. The bee was laying on the corner of the work table so of course I had to add him as an embellishment. 'Which means, now my sentiment reads "Bee Grateful" LOL.
