Bee Mine

Here's a simple, sweet design based on the current sketch at Can You Case It? featuring one of the adorable "critters" from Clear and Simple Stamps.

I die cut a heart from red cardstock and adhered it to a piece of dotted blue patterned paper.  To go with the heart, I stamped and colored up the bee image from the Taglines:  Critters set.  Originally, I planned to use the set's owl image, but I wasn't happy with how the colors I used looked with the heart and blue background, so I switched things up and used the bee instead.  I used foam tape to adhere the bee over the heart and a narrow strip of yellow cardstock.  I added a tiny piece of crystal flourish extending out from the back of the bee to form a flight trail. 

Once again, I used my MISTI to help me double stamp the sentiment ("bee mine") so it would be nice and bold.  The finished panel was adhered to a blue card base.  CSS has a great range of blue cardstocks and this My Favorite Blue Jeans just might be one of my favorite colors . . .  

Materials Used:
Taglines:  Critters stamp set, My Favorite Blue Jeans, Dare to Be a Diva Red, Say Yellow to All Your Fans, and A Blanc Check cardstock, Shapes:  Hearts dies (Clear and Simple Stamps); Memento Tuxedo Black and Versafine Onyx Black inks (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Recollections Blue Pindot designer paper (Michaels); foam tape
