Bee girl

Today I have a mini canvas to share with you, something I made just for fun:

P1080663

This uses one of my new stamps from Invoke Arts – a cute little tag shape. If you look very carefully you may just spot the bee hiding amongst the flowers. As ever I was short on time so just made it up as I went along, generally just picking up scraps and bits that were easily to hand. I used Rusty Hinge distress ink to stamp the image and then added a little colour here and there using water colour pencils. I made a feature of her crown by adding glitter.

The canvas was waiting to be put away so instead I grabbed it, covered it with book page and then some dusky rose acrylic paint. Once dry, I blobbed on some texture bead gel, left it to dry and then rubbed on gold acrylic paint.

I have a special box that I keep all my lace type trims in, including any scraps and offcuts. I layered on scraps, popped on the tag and then some more scraps.

  1. What a sweet little canvas this is … I’ve been taking a look at the stuff I missed this past week and you have created some lovely things … What a busy little bee you are!

  2. Lisette, that’s just for fun… it’s amazing, love that little girl image and the crown on her head, the pieces of trims and scraps are making a beauty composition 😉

  3. I love this stamp, but I had to laugh when you said ‘if you look very carefully you may just spot the bee hiding amongst the flowers’ lol, it is almost as big as her head! The feature crown looks fab.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
