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 seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me…
… seven bees a-swimming
Recipe – Dylusions sprays, spiral mask, sea bubbles stamp by Ryn, white ink pad, bee stamp (Stampotique), Black Memento ink.
I sprayed the card with blue, green and turquoise Dylusions sprays, blotted with kitchen roll and then, whilst still damp, overlaid the stencil, spritzed with water and then blotted. This technique is called “ghosting” and removes some of the ink. I cleaned the stencil and then used it again, this time spraying inks through the stencil. This builds up a layered look. I dried it with a heat gun before stamping the white sea bubbles. The bees were stamped over the top but it actually looks like I did it the other way around. I decided to leave it like this, rather than cut out extra bees and stick them over the top, as it looked like the bees could be under the water.
Thanks for buzzing by.
