Just bee-cause!


Hi there!

Happy Monday to you!  I hope you're having a good start of the week!  I want to share with you a card I made for City Crafter Challenge.  The theme this week is "Paint It".  We are to have a painted background using water colors, mists, distress stain, etc. 

And, here is my card...


I chose to use water colors.  I painted the background on water color paper using yellow and orange paint.  I then used perfect pearls mist(gold).  I wish you could see it in person.  The gold mist has a pretty shine to it.  The photo just doesn't show it well here.  The stamp set is from PTI.  Aren't those bees bee-utiful?:-) Well, that's all I have for today.  Please stop by again on Thursday for another card!  Thanks for taking time to drop by!

Hugs,
Maria

  6. Those bees are just too cute, Maria. I can imagine the shine on your paper. It bothers me so much when I can't always capture the sparkle and shine on my cards.

    I sometimes have cards missing from my blog list, too. It's so aggravating.

  14. So very fun! I love your watercolored background! So love the images all stamped in black. And highlighting the bees with the layered die cuts and the gems was such a fantastic idea!
