Paper Anthology


Playing with Honey Bee

Filed in challenges

This weeks challenge at Shopping our stash, SOS381,   is to create a card inspired by a food or beverage label.  So I went in my pantry and this box jumped out at me:



Probably because I really wanted some biscuits, or more precisely, biscuits and gravy, but I digress..

The layout and the color scheme caught my eye and I was ready to roll!  Here’s what I came up with:


The stamps are from a Honey Bee stamp set that I’ve been itching to get inky.  The image is colored in with Polychromos pencils with just a touch of sponged squeezed lemonade distress ink to soften things up a bit.

Now I’m off to work on the Christmas Card swap!


thanks for stopping by!
