Clear Dollar Stamps May Blog Hop


Good morning!  Today I have some fun news to share....  I have been asked to join the Clear Dollar Stamps DT...and I accepted!  I thought I would jump right in with the monthly blog hop.  The theme for May is "Something With Wings" and there is a prize up for grabs...more about that later!

Today I am working with the "Bumbles" digital set, which has a darling assortment of cute bees and sentiments. I printed the image, colored it with pencils and accented the wings with glitter.  I used 2 different glitters...a extra sparkly one for the bottom wings and one with a more subtle sparkle for the larger wings...I wanted to make sure that the blue shading would show through the glitter.  The image is layered with diecuts before piercing a "trail", then popped up for dimension.  I added the sentiment printed on blue paper and some blue Bella Dots to bring out the bits of blue in the DP.

Image/Sentiment: Clear Dollar Stamps "Bumbles" Digital Set
