I chose to use the "Bee Mine" image by Beth Silaika to make a card with. I colored it in with Copic Markers and set aside. I used a piece of PTI Dotty Biscotti patterned paper and layered it over white cardstock. I then die cut with my Silhouette digital cutter a heart border out of PTI Lemon Tart cardstock and used 3 PTI dies (Label Basics, Limitless Layers 1 3/4" circles) to cut out the other elements. I put it all together, with the finishing touch being a pop dotted heart on as the bee's wings.
Oh! I forgot to say that before I put the whole card together I inked every single element. Want to know a secret? I wasn't going to ink it at all but the ink smudged on the print out and I didn't want to have to print it out again. The ink covered it up!! I actually like the look of the inking but I think any paper is naked without it.
Thank you for looking!!
