Hi everyone. Less is More Challenge is celebrating it's 9th birthday, so congratulations to the team for a really fun and successful challenge, and long may you continue, and the theme is 'Less (tiny and few)'. I wouldn't say that CAS comes naturally to me but I do love the look, and enjoy trying to achieve it if I can. I have not been a good contributor lately but thought that this year, and especially it being their birthday I would get an entry in, and will definitely try to enter more often.
I bought some Crafty Individual stamps recently and as an extra Jean kindly sent me a few little single stamps one of which was this really cute little bee image which is so detailed, and that is what I used. I have looked it up and I think it comes from the 'Floral Postcard' collage stamp.
I found a sentiment from my stash which seemed appropriate and stamped it using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and heat embossed it with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I then did a little fairly soft stencilling using a Tim Holtz Honeycomb stencil using Adirondack Sunshine Yellow and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. I then stamped the bee around the sentiment again using the Nocturne ink and coloured them using more of the Spiced Marmalade DI and also some Black Soot DI and used a Wink of Stella Pen to glitter the wings a bit, though it doesn't really show. I think perhaps my pen is running out so must buy a new one soon. I cut the piece of white card slightly smaller than the 6" square card and mounted it up.
Thank you for joining me today and I hope to see you again soon.
I am also entering:
Stamping Sensations February Challenge - Feminine.
Penny Black and More February Challenge - Animals, Birds and Butterflies. (I am hoping that as butterflies and bees both have six legs and are therefore insects my bees are eligible, but please remove my entry if not)
Happy Little Stampers February CAS Challenge - Positive.
