Would you like to experiment with a design like this? You'll find a supply list below, including a link to the stencil I used from A Colorful Life Designs .

Letโ€™s Get Started:

Card Base: 5.5 x 8.5, scored and folded at 4.25

Card Face: 5 1/8 x 4

Card Face:

  • I secured the stencil to the card face with Mint Tape, got out my blending brushes and applied a mixture of blue, pink and purple inks randomly.

  • I placed the card face into my stamp positioner to ensure correct placement of the bees in the cirlces, and then stamped them in Memento ink; then coloured them with alcohol markers.

  • Returning the card face to the stamp positioner I stamped the sentiment with black pigment ink. I removed it, sprinkled it with clear embossing powder and used my heat gun to set the powder.

  • I added highlights to the bubbles using a white gel pen.

Assembly:


I glued the card face to the card base, aligning at the top.

Final thoughts:


this is a cute, whimsical card and it will bring a smile to someone one of these days.
