Bee Calm...

Bee Calm - Bee Yourself - Bee Amazing!
Bingo: Embossing, Ribbon &
Fave color: Red-Orange

After seeing this "Bee" Collage Sheet at My Artistic Adventures,  I immediately thought of this image I have from Lacy Sunshine called "Winter Honey Bee Sticky Wings" that could go with it so beautifully!  I picked up the colors that Heather used in her Bees to color my Honey Bee...LOve those colors!

Aud Sentiments current challenge is 
a Bingo game using this card: 

This is the last week of the two week challenge, but you have time to get up to 5 entries in for a chance at the prize!  The sponsor of this Bingo challenge is My Artistic Adventures and you can see some very creative versions by our DT using Heather's pre-colored collage sheets HERE.

"Vintage Bumble Bee Calm
Digital Collage Sheet"
can be found HERE
  • I love this pre-colored collage sheet - it was provided by Heather, at  My Artistic Adventures to use for this challenge.  Thank you Heather!  I took two of the tag shapes and glued them together to make a double sided tag & punched a hole at the top.
  • The sentiments are from the collage sheet and I just cut out two of them and applied them to the tag.
  • The Queen Bee image is from Lacy Sunshine called "Winter Honey Bee Sticky Wings".  For this image I used Paper Tole Technique to give her dimension. Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the images.  The layers were both glued in some places & elevated in others with foam tape to achieve the desired dimension.

  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the Honey Bee image 
  • The collage sheet is on "Kraft" paper.
  • Flower in her hand is from stash.
  • Fibers are from a pack of "Adornaments" from EK Success

  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
