Hello Honey

Here's my card for the current Muse challenge.  I was inspired by the card's layout and and insect image.

Hello Honey card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Paper Smooches
Instead of a butterfly, I used a bee on my card.  My bee is from the Paper Smooches Bee Mine set.  I colored the bee with Copic markers and cut it out with the matching die.  The wings got a light coating of sparkle courtesy of a Spectrum Noir glitter pen.  The wavy cut that divides the blue panel was made with a stitched die from My Favorite Things.  I adhered the cut pieces to a white card base with a silver strip placed across it to fill in the gap between the two panels.  The bee was placed on top using foam tape for dimension.  I stamped the set's "hello honey" sentiment  beneath the wavy cut, positioning the text following the curves as best I could.  I thought about adding more (some sequins or a heart sticker or two) but decided that in this case, simple was better!
Materials Used:
Bee Mine stamp set, Bee Mine Icons dies (Paper Smooches); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); clear glitter pen (Spectrum Noir); Sno Cone cardstock, Die-namics Hit the Slope dies (My Favorite Things); Recollections Silver cardstock (Michaels); foam tape
