No automatic alt text available.

I was experimenting with Beck Beattie's COLOR CRUSH (yes, spelt correctly) POWDERS - I so love the colours, just beautiful -
I dipped a piece of watercolour paper in and let it dry naturally - before inking the edge, twisting a piece of twine around the bottom - stamped a bee and adhered the zipper pull for a body, sponged through the spotty stencil - inked a sentiment in black and it's ready to go!!

Thank you for visiting,

  1. A brilliant piece of background watercolouring using our twist, Alison. How genius you used a zipper pull for the body of the bee! Wow. It is so good to see you over at Happy Little Stampers. Thanks for playing along xx

  2. Very cool, Alison. That bee is super! And your background is beautiful. Thanks for playing along at HLS WC challenge for January.

  3. When i saw you say the bee was stamped I was like 'how is it so 3D' but then noticed the zipper - wow that is SO clever. What a fabulous, natural and serene card. Thanks so much for joining us at the HLS watercolor challenge! Jenny x
