A Bee-utiful Day!


Isn't this the cutest bee? It's a Dustin Pike image! I was blog hopping and saw his Easter bunnies...too adorable and followed links to find this little fellow, downloaded him and popped him on my card! Perfect for the Stamping B's new challenge; to use a bee!
I colored him with Prisma markers and the papers are MS, added glitter and some raindrops. I didn't want to use too much black so I smudged some gray pastels on his face and arms....what color are bee's arms????
The sketch is from Sketch Saturday and since there's sparkle (isn't there always sparkle?) I'm playing along with Crafty Creations challenge this week!
Blessings!!!

Awe he sure is the cutest little bee on the blog Maria. Fab colouring and love those papers and sentiment. -x-

Ann said...

I think bee's limbs are black but they usually very thin and tucked up - well to be truthful I never really looked that closely as I'm usually ducking out of the way when there is one around. Having said that I love the one on your card Maria - it's brill.

Had a look at your other stuff too while I was here you've done some brill cards recently - love em but the bee is my favourite.

The wings are just gorgeous with the sparkle and I am not sure what color bee's arms are supposed to be but they look fantastic!!! Beautiful papers and color scheme as well!
