A little Bee

"Hello!"  That's what this little Bee is saying to you all.  Every once in a while I dust off my Faber-Castell Polychromo pencils and give them a go.  Today was that day.  Pencil coloring is just.... neat. 
Coloring an image with pencils is so very different.  I find it cathartic at times.  I mean this little guy was 5 layers of pencil coloring on Sweet Sentiment Premium coloring paper.  I love the effect that pencils have on the image.  It's soothing to me to take the time and watch it all develop.  

Ok now that you KNOW I'm totally strange.... I used Distress Oxide inks to make the background, also on Sweet Sentiment coloring paper, and an awesome stencil from The Rabbit Hole Designs.  I then used Alphabet dies from Honey Bee stamps to cut out the word, and their A2 scalloped edge card die as well.  I then layered it all up and popped up the letters and the bee (He's from Stampers Delights!) with foam mounting squares.  I finished it off with some awesome ribbon that I found at the Dollar tree like FOREVER ago. 

This little Bee just makes me smile, I've made a lot of cards using him, and I still grin every time I color him.  I'm sure you'll see more of him in the future. 

I'm buzzing off to get another cup of coffee.  Talk to you all soon! Hugs and Toodles!
