Between now and January 6th I am sharing some little bee related projects – the 12 Days of Christmas with a Mrs Beez twist. I hope you enjoy them.
On the eleventh day Christmas my true love gave to me…
…eleven bees a-haunting
If I’d known how I was going to create this I would have moved it higher up the batting order so there were fewer bees! These fabulous ghost bees were a freebie from McMahon Five Designs and created to mark Breast Cancer Awareness month in October. I didn’t get them in time to do anything useful with them but fully intend to create some projects and raise some money this forthcoming October. There are lots of fabulous digi-stamps on the website, including lots of Breast Cancer awareness designs, but unfortunately these bees seem to be absent from the collections.
I resized and arranged the bees randomly before printing out two sets. I coloured the background lightly with distress inks and went over the antennae with a fine black marker. I added extra colour to the edge of the card and then stamped on the spider and webs. I cut out all eleven bees from the second set and used small, thin foam pads to stick them over the original images.
Thanks for buzzing by.
