Good morning folks, a lovely sunny Saturday morning and we're starting a brand new challenge over at 'We Do Doobadoo' where the theme is 'Sweet as Honey' and you can interpret the theme any way you wish. You don't have to use Dutch Doobadoo products to enter but of course we love it when you do. There is a fab prize up for grabs of gorgeous Dutch Doobadoo goodies (including the fabulous Teapot Template) so do pop over to the challenge blog to check out all the details and while you're there check out the gorgeous inspiration from my talented teamies too.
I've created a background using distress inks on coated card and then stamped an Indigo Blu honeycomb stamp and embossed with Frantage Shabby White EP. Next I added faux stitching with a white Graph'It Shake pen and some yellow gingham ribbon,a little bee charm and white lace. The focal image was made using stamps from Chocolate Baroque 'Honey Bee' set, coloured with Graph'It Markers.
Next the fun bit, adding lots of embellies, well I love the Dutch Doobadoo softboard Honeycomb so I added some of that, painted with Maimeri White Gesso, a few paper flowers from my stash, some little honey bees (made with stamps from the same set, I stamped the wings on acetate and smeared some stickles on the back for sparkly wings). I also added some of the delicate Dutch Doobadoo laser cut butterflies, love these they are so pretty but they stand up to inking really well
Lastly I added the sentiment, also from the Honey Bee set, framed with a spellbinders die cut
