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.
