I'm trying to decide whether I'm on a card roll right now to avoid all the other stuff I should be doing in preparation for the wedding. Basically, I'm not very good with detailed wedding things, but I'm a decent cardmaker, so I'm guessing I'm making cards right now just to feel good about something. At any rate, right now stamping is a de-stressing strategy I have, so I'm just going to go with it.
The bee image is from Stamps Happen. I stamped it with Marvy dye black ink onto a Nestabilities panel cut from Georgia Pacific cardstock. I did some sponging around the panel with SeaShells Seashell Pink dye ink. The image is so fun to color, so I did some multimedia coloring with Copic Markers and colored pencils; including Prismacolor, Caran d'Ache, and Derwent Coloursoft pencils.
Patterned paper panels were used to create this card, as well as brown brads for the antennae.
This card was inspired by a Dare to Get Dirty Challenge on SCS, DTGD10flowergal36.
Now back to the stuff I'm not so good at doing.
