Happy New Year

Welcome to my 1st Blog of 2016!

This is a quick/ish!!  card using a lovely set of stamps from Chocolate Baroque

Hexagonal base card. Also cut a frame and a smaller hexagonal and frame for the sentiment.
I used  Distress inks - Fossilised Amber and Espresso for the honeycombstamping. I prefer to use a blender sponge  or similar to put the ink to the stamp. This technique for me gives a more defined stamping as excess moisture is taken up by the blender. I love the blender sponges from Creative Expressions - now available as a mini size.
Stamped the larger Bee onto heat resistant acetate and cut out. Added colour from the back with alcohol markers.
Stamped other Bees direct to card
Smoothies - Ink Blending Sponge
That's all for today.....Catch up again soon
