It’s all all about the Bees in Dragonfly Dreams
I really don’t know what made me think of this card. I was watercoloring for the last project and I think I just stayed in the mode! The background is watercolor paper and I used the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to give it a “honeycomb” look. These new dynamic embossing folders give a deeper and more defined embossing on card stock. This creates a rich, artistic looking background for your cards. It is a particularly good effect when used on the watercolor paper, which embossing easily due to the texture and softness of the paper.
After creating a “honeycomb” background with the embossing, I had to use the bees from the Dragonfly Dreams set! And also the dotted pattern stamp from seemed perfect as the “honey” on the “honeycomb”. This dotted stamp was just randomly stamped and re-stamped all over the Hexagons embossing until I thought it looked like honey. I colored in the bees a bit using watercolor pencil. After that, all I needed was a bit of ribbon. I used the Black Baker’s Twine because anything wider would have been too much.
All the items I used to make the card are items that will be carried over to the new catalog! The Dragonfly Dreams set I actually won at On Stage November 2016. And I have been so happy to have it ever since. A great perk of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator!
