Bee Kind

I've been wanting to do a bee card for some time now, and thought I'd try out the bee from the Graciellie set: Bee Kind.
I printed my bee's wings twice and added the second set above the first for a little more dimension. I also inverted the color on the sentiment to create a chalkboard look (again!).
Supplies and Tools:
Graciellie Bee Kind Digital Stamp Set, Prismacolor Pencils, Postcard Stamp (Hampton Art), Black Soot Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), Honeycomb Embossing Folder (Darice), White Pigment Ink (rubbed over embossing), Baker's Twine, Washi Tape, Bee Stamp (Stampin' Up)

A bee is perfect choice for this challenge! You made it look so real by printing it twice and I love the reversed sentiment. You finished the inside too and it is delightful. Thanks so much for sharing with us this week at the Mod Squad Challenge.

So very pretty, love the dimension you gave to the wings, love it on the postcard background and how you distressed it, great idea using the yellow and black twines!
