Honey Bee Happy Birthday!

Happy Monday everyone!  Not only is is a new week – but it is also a new challenge over at Double Trouble Challenge Blog!

And since Thing 2 is challenging us to pair with Joy of sets – here is their TicTacToe board

I went with the diagonal from top left down to bottom right.  It matches perfectly with Double Trouble.  So here’s my card!

I used the adorable Birds and the Bees set by Honey Bee stamps

Birthday card, check – Things that fly, check – Sponging? Check!  But it might be different than what you are used too with sponging!  I don’t even own sponges anymore because it’s been so many years since I used a standard sponging technique.  So I took a microbrush (used for eyelash extensions and has a tiny little sponge-type tip on it) and carefully added shading to the centers of the blossoms and throughout the beehive.  A sponging type of shading!  It’s all about getting creative with our stuff right?!  I have those on hand for glue application of tiny die cuts and I’m glad I tried them for something else

I added some sequins all around this branch and hive scene for some sparkle and shine

So glad you’d stop by to see it! Have a wonderful week and be sure to go play along with these challenges!

Much love,

Kellianne 🙂
