Clearly Besotted Cute as a Bug Valentine card -

 Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at Simply Create Too

Our Blog Badge

and the theme this time is Love or Valentine.

I broke out another yet unused stamp set - the Clearly Besotted Cute as a Bug stamp set and came up with this card

I started off by by stamping and cutting masks for the bee, flower and stem, before stamping the bee in Memento ink. I masked the bee and stamped the flower over it before placing the flower mask down and stamping the stem. I left all the masks in place while I airbrushed a blue background, and then stamped the cute sentiment. Once everything was dry, I removed the masks and coloured the image with Copic markers before cutting it out with a stitched rectangle die.

I layered up the panel onto another stitched mat and then raised it onto the base card with fun foam. Finally I coated the bee wings with some Wink of Stella glitter brush pen which gives alovely sparkly finish IRL but it is hard to catch it on the photo.

Why not visit the Simply Create Too blog to see some inspiration from the team and then join in with us this time. You have two weeks to link up your card and we love to see your creations.
Thanks for stopping by
