"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!
