JUST Bee-Cause Paper Players Challenge PP589 Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC282

 May 1, 2022

It's Sunday and time for new challenges at The Paper Players and Sunday Stamps 

The amazing Jaydee is our hostess this week at The Paper Players.  She has a very fun theme challenge for all us.  Birds and /or Bees!  Soooo many fabulous ideas for this one. 

Sunday Stamps  has an amazing sketch for you to use.  This is such a fun sketch and the possibilities are endless. Have fun!  

My card is created using a white card base.  I added a black panel on top of the card.  I cut a white panel with a stitched die and sponged the sides with black ink.  I used the Simon Says Stamp BEE Yourself stamp set to create the honeycomb, bees and the sentiment.  I colored the honey comb and bees with Copic Markers.  I added Wink of Stella for shine and Glossy Accents to the bee's wings and the glasses.  I cut the 3 banners with scraps of black and white gingham and polka dots to complete the card.
