Good morning everyone! If you haven't commented on yesterday's card yet and would like a chance to win it, you have until noon to do that. Before I get to today's card I'd like to point you in the direction of some awesome blog candy being given away by Dori here. I can't believe the amount of stuff she's got up for grabs! Her blog is pretty cool too, so take a look around while you're there!
Okay, today's card is of course using today's release from Squigglefly called Bee My Honey.

I had a lot of fun coloring this. I love the way the tree is drawn, and the image is just a really cute one. I colored with copic markers and chalked my sky. I stamped some grass sprigs in the copic colored ground to add some depth to it. For a little detail I added some crystal lacquer to the honey jar and some stickles to the bees wings. Here's a close up of that.
The honey comb on the side is some designer paper that I stamped what I think is really supposed to be chicken wire, but I thought if you didn't look close enough it would pass for honey comb! I colored in a few of the spots with a copic marker because I think that's how I usually see honey comb done; with some of the areas filled in. In the end I really like the result and am rather proud of myself for improvising with chicken wire!
I printed the greeting with my computer in a font called Boopee and used a scalloped oval nestabilities to cut it out. Then because I wanted to take part in Rhonda's challenge I printed the Happy To Be Me image from squigglefly on the top right. That little guy just fit in with the theme perfectly! I hope some of you will take Rhonda up on her challenge and play too! She's giving away some pretty good candy as incentive and you have until May 17th.
I am still working on tomorrow's card, but I am so excited with the way it is turning out and I can't wait to show it to you! Okay, I'll be back a little after noon to announce the card winner! Thanks for looking!
