Our current challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is A Touch of Charm, so basically as long as it has a charm attached/incorporated, that will be fine.
I finally got the Tim Holtz Layered Bee die and texture fade combination I have been lusting after for weeks! I die cut it from yellow Bazill card, and having run in through the texture fade embossing folder I coloured it’s thorax, stripes and legs with black copic pen. I added some soft orange to it’s wings to give dimension, but as I then added a layer of soft acetate, glittered with glamour dust you can’t see with the way the light hit the card that the wings have this additional colour! So I don’t really know why I just mentioned it, lol
The Beehive, honeycomb and the two shrink plastic bees on the hive are all from an Xcut die set called Bee Keeping, which was a perfect match for the Layered Bee die.
My paper is from Heartfelt Creations Sunflower pad, and my charm was plain silver, but I added a couple of copic shades so that it would more like the centre of the sunflower that was already on the paper.
I distressed around the edges of the paper and two mats, and stamped a few small bees that I got from Art Journey.
