… Miss Agatha Bee! As you know, I received this stamp for Christmas and although I have had lots of ideas on how I’d like to use her, I just haven’t had time to do any of it .. until now!
This is a little triptych that I made using the Tim Holtz Arch Alterations Die. I cut two, the same size, from chipboard and then cut one in half. I’ve covered them with white card and then inked with Broken China, Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn distress inks, then spritzed with water. I’ve then done some random stamping with swirls (Neil Walker) and dots.
I stamped Agatha on the central panel and then used Stampotique’s Daisy Daisy stamp. The flower heads have been coloured with white gel pen and orange Promarker. I stamped a second image of Agatha, cut her out and coloured her in using Promarkers, paper piecing the bee. The words are from a collage sheet from Lisa’s Altered Art over on Etsy. I think this phrase its probably pertinent to a lot of people and certainly rings true for myself.
I’m sharing this over at Sunday Stampers for this week’s “Wings” challenge.
I was thrilled and honoured that Magda Polakow, talented artist and creator of Agatha, left a lovely comment here on my blog just recently. I really hope she is dreaming up some more fabulous incarnations of Magda and her super cute stamp sister Nina.
Thanks for buzzing by,
