Hello Friends, How are you doing?? Happy Father's Day to the men in your life :)
I just discovered that Gallery Idol is well underway so I thought I would submit a card. I hope that you all can tell the story of the card?
The theme for the contest is a Congratulatory card. You can read all the rules and regulations here.
For the inside I use the "Sew Easy" mat for easy and fast pierced holes. Again my SRM Sticker sheets had the perfect sentiments for this card. Thank YOU Susan!! Want to shop for SRM Stickers just click here.
I am going to show you lots of angles of this card and below you will find a tutorial for the background too.
These happy bees are so BEElighted that they are beeing let our of the mason jar. By the way I bought this stamp years ago at A.C. Moore and there isn't any information on the wood mount stamp.
I was thrilled that I figured out how to get this 3D effect on the bees flying out of the jar. Details below.
Just got this frog stamp... love him. Did you get that he took the lid off of the jar to let the bees out?? Notice the eyes ..One layer of Enamel Accents first white, then when dry add black on top of the white. This layered enamel really makes the eyes pop and gives them lots of dimension.
I am hoping that the photos below are pretty self explanatory? I will give brief instructions on creating this background but, if you go here first this will guide you for the grass and sky. Please let me know if you have questions.
Let me know if I missed something please. Thank YOU for stopping I am always grateful.Hugs, Kathy
