Good morning! It's time for another sketch challenge from Melissa over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week our sponsor is Die Cuts R Us, an online crafting store.
I choose to go with a summer theme, as summer is finally in full swing. Woo Hoo! I love the hot weather! And who doesn't like to bar-b-que?! I had this paper and ribbon in my stash and thought it would be perfect for this cute, little Stampendous bee.
The bee is colored with Prismas and I have added some glitter to the wings and antennaes. The image is cut and layered with Nestabilities. I had originally planned to tie a knot with the ribbon, but found that the ants were upside down on the "tails" of the knot. Instead I just trimmed off the tails and used a glue dot in the back to hold the knot down and keep it together.
