NBUS Challenge #7

 Prompted by Darnell and her NBUS challenge #7 I surveyed my mountain of I am ashamed to say "Never been used" craft stash. I was being so good decluttering, but then new things found their way in!

Out of all the things I could have chosen I went with this embossing folder. I used aqua tints to colour it and gilding wax over the bees. Three of the honeycomb have been treated to a Pebeo paint. I ran gold pen over the trails and some of the honeycomb - just can't get it to pick up on the photo though. Here's a closer look
The bee is from Tattered Lace and has it's first outing too. Finally a NBUS stamp from a set by Clever cut - I stamped as a long script but it comes with one part under the other. I used a gold spectrum noir sparkle pen to edge the papers.

What a great way to start on the NBUS mountain Lynn. I love the way you have the bees following the trail and the honeycomb looks fab!

This is fabulous Lynn and I love the depth of colour that you've achieved. The rich, golden honey colour works perfectly with the bees. I love the sentiment too. Have a great weekend. Sandra X

I know, Linby, you turn around and your Mt. NBUS is as tall or taller than it was a minute ago!! Those darn talented stamp, die, and e/f designers just won't take a vacation and let us get caught up! But you made a good effort and your honey bee card is a brilliant showcase of that fab e/f! I love all the cool details you included!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! Hugs, Darnell
