Did you see the OCL challenge #103 for this week?
The theme is Up in the Air
I chose to use the adorabe Our Craft Lounge Crafty Clear Bees Knees set to create my card. I had fallen in LOVE with this card by Torico and used her wonderful layout as a starting point for my card. I changed the shape of the opening from a circle to an oval and added embossed dots to my base card. The background paper is one of my all time favorites from My Mind's Eye. I hated to cut into my last sheet, but knew it would be perfect to act as a sky for my branch/hive. I cut out the branch/hive and adhered it flat to the print cardstock and then I stamped the hive a second time on a scrap of honey colored print paper, added some shading with Copic markers and popped it up with a couple of small Tombow Foam Tabs. The cute little bee has taken flight on the end of some gold floral wire that I curled around a small paintbrush for added dimension. I stamped the sentiment from the same Our Craft Lounge Bees Knees set in black ink and added some Diamond Stickles for the wings on the bee and called it good.
Here is our inspiration photo for the week and a little info about the challenge.
