Less is More #370 – Sketch #23

Hellio there!  Another fortnight has passed and we are back with a new challenge at Less is More (LIM).  It is a sketch this time.  We have our February winner, Sue of Sue’s Card Craft, joining us as our guest designer.  Once again, our generous sponsor this month is Happy Little Stampers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the sketch.

 

 

And here’s my card.

 

 

I decided to create a simple sky scene with these little bees, so a stitched rectangle was die cut from Bashful Blue cardstock (retired).  Inked VersaMark through a cloud stencil and heat embossed with White Puff embossing powder (ep).  This ep is new to me and instead of a shiny raised image, it leaves a puffy texture.  Next, stamped the large and small bees on scraps of X-Press It paper, coloured them with Copics and die cut out with the coordinating dies.  The sentiment was white heat embossed with regular white ep on a black strip.  Mounted the blue panel to a white top folding card base then assembled the elements on the card.  Added clear shimmer to the bees’ wings to finish.
