NOTE: Today’s Color Wednesday video will be up tonight. I’m leaving this post at the top of my blog until then.
With the exception of the Kelly Purkey stamps, I worked on all the products in this release. So I’m SUPER excited to see what the awesome card designers participating in the blog hop have up their sleeves. :) You can see more stamps and dies I’ve designed HERE.
Here are all the products in this release…
I decided to use the Circle Friends stamp set on my card. Since I stamped the hexagon pattern circle in Hero Arts Butter Bar ink and wanted the bee to match, I smushed the ink pad on an acrylic block and picked up the ink with a Dove Blender Pen. For the black of the bee, I used a black Inktense pencil with a bit of water on a watercolor brush.
The embossed texture is from the Tim Holtz Honeycomb embossing folder. I put the white cardstock only partially into the embossing folder so the bottom portion wouldn’t be embossed and I could stamp on it. I like how the edge of the embossing created a clean line above the stamping.
The black with white dots paper is from the Love Story 6×6 pad by Echo Park.
