Simply Bee by DT Ann

 Simply Bee 

By DT Ann 

Using a big stamp can be daunting.. but using sections of it can create interesting backgrounds. 

Stamps: Scripted Bee / Bee Monarchy / Journal Elements 3

Die: Bee Monarchy

D’Inkable : Honeycomb from set 1

Distress Oxide: Crushed Olive 

Versafine Clair Nocturne 

Ranger Clear Embossing Powder 

Acrylic Slims

Posca Pen Black

Sequin waste

5” x 7” card blank 

4.5” x 6.5” piece of card + spare pieces

Start by inking part of the Bee Script stamp with Crushed Olive Distress Oxide ink. I only used the top right of the stamp, repeat until happy with your background, remembering to leave some white space. 

Tip: wipe away any sections you don’t want to use with a cloth before you stamp… 

Swipe the same ink across the honeycomb Dinkable, try to use the centre section as the edges are solid & will create splotches…  you can always wipe away any excess before spritzing a little water over the Dinkable. 
Then place inkside down onto your card cover with some copier paper & press firmly.  Give the ink time to sink in… 

Add the numbers from Art Elements 3 using a black ink, you could use Hero Arts or Archival … 

On a separate piece of paper stamp the large bee from the Bee Monarchy stamp set, add some clear embossing powder & heat set. Die cut the bee & then colour… I used the Crushed Olive & a little water. 

Cut a few random shapes out of sequin waste.. you could use a die cut that creates a similar look. 

Glue the waste to your background & add some splatters with a black Posca pen … 

Ink up the little clock face on the Scripted Bee stamp, in black, wipe away any excess ink before stamping onto a separate piece of card. Repeat twice & add clear embossing powder, heat emboss & cut out. 

Using foam pads add the 3 clock faces & the large bee.. 
Finally stamp the word ‘Bee’ three times… 

Mat & layer onto black card & then a 5”x 7” card blank .. 

Thank you for stopping by… Ann xxx
