Honey Bee Stamps You Brighten My Day

Hello friends! I am so excited to be sharing my first card as a Honey Bee Stamps Design Team member! I absolutely adore Brilliant Day stamp set, and thought this would be a perfect time to use it.

I started by stamping the pencils with a light ink, and used Copic Markers to color them in a rainbow order. I used two Copic Markers for each color, and used Polychromos pencils to add finishing details. Once I was happy with the coloring, I used the coordinating Honey Cuts to die-cut the image.

I used a stencil from the Polka Dot Stencil Set for the background. I masked each row of dots with Purple Tape, and used a Background Blender Brush to blend ink, matching ink to the pencil for that row. I trimmed the panel when I finished, and attached it to a card base with foam adhesive. I stamped a sentiment from Thanks A Bunch stamp set with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink, and used the coordinating Honey Cuts to die-cut it. I added the sentiment and pencils with thin foam squares to finish the card.

Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope I brightened your day with this card, and gave you ideas on how to incorporate stencils into your projects. Until next time, Happy Crafting!
