Bee Happy!

I bought some new die cuts from Memory Box and Impression Obsession this week.  I have been having fun designing different cards with all the extra fun.

I think this one is my favorite using Digital Delights Bumble Bee Larry and Memory Box Orchard Tree Frame.

I printed off Larry, colored him with my Copics and then dabbed in the sky with Adarondack Aqua and a sponge dauber.  I also added flicks of grass with the Copic markers around Larry.

I used my Cuttle Bug to cut out the tree and lots of leaves.  I added dimension to the leaves by embossing them with my large round ball stylus  After gluing all the leaves on I was ready to assemble my card.

Card Recipe
Paper:  Bazzill Yellow and Brown, Old Olive, Graphic 45 Secret Garden
Markers/Ink: Copics, Adarondack Aqua on the sky and Meadow under the grass.
Embellishments: Memory Box Orchard Tree Frame, Impression Obsession dies, BoBunny Ribbon, Sizzix Butterfly die, Wild Orchid flowers, MS Leaf punch
