I'm using stamps from the Palettini line at Technique Junkies called Botanical Bee. The technique I am using can be found on the Sensational Stencils CD! There are 40 different techniques on this one CD--great ideas for using your stencils in new and creative ways. I love the Technique Junkie CD's because they are all about getting more out of the supplies we already own!
The tutorial is called Pasted Dylusions. I chose a stencil of hexagonal shapes to add to the bee theme of the card--I think it is very hivey looking :) After allowing the paste to set, I used three different shades of yellow and orange to create the colorful background. Once that was finished, I added some Vintage Photo distress ink to highlight the stencil shapes. I love this technique for the extra dimension and color it adds to any project.
I'm sure you can tell that the bee in this set is HUGE!!! I surely would not want to meet him in real life, but he is perfect for this card along with the fun saying! And, just in case you do not yet have a bunch of stencils (like some people I know.....) to use with this fabulous CD, Technique Junkies has some super cool ones for you to grab! They ARE generating lots of buzz.................
Stay awesome....you know you want to..... Jane
