2 Sketches 4 You: Sponsored by Clear & Simple Stamps


This week Clear & Simple Stamps is sponsoring this weeks sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You.

I pulled out my Flight of the Bee set for this card. I hate when I'm staring at my stamp sets and can see them working and then they don't seem to do the trick when I get them out with a sketch. Luckily this one worked just fine with my card.

When I saw this paper from Basic Grey's Pink Lemonade pad, I thought it looked like a honeycomb. I cut it using my scalloped square nestabilities.

For my little bee, I decided to break out of the yellow/black theme and go with the colors in the paper. I stamped one on the paper and another to cut out, coloring it with my Copics, scoring the little wings and then putting some Crystal Effects all over him.

I hope you will join the 2 Sketches 4 You group and Clear & Simple Stamps this week and try this sketch. Make sure you post to the Mr. Linky on the 2 Sketches 4 You blog so we can check out your design.
