Guest Designer Yesterday


I was Guest Designer yesterday over at "One by One the Flamingo's are Stealing my Sanity". Well today is another Guest Designer and more blog Candy, so be sure to hop on over there to get your chance at winning.

Here is my Card I submitted. The list of supplies are at the bottom of the post and the instructions are either before or after each pic.

These flower petals were direct stamped from ink pad to paper. The leaves were done using the 2 step stamping technique.  The light green was done with a second stamping of the image without re-inking the stamp. The dark green is from ink pad to paper.

The Bee was colored with markers in yellow and black, while the trail was done with a black pen.

Inked edges of the yellow textured cardstock as well as the saying punch in Dutch Blue ink.

Here is the Card in total

This flower also used the 2 step stamping and the stamping on scrap paper them to cardstock.
