MMSC#60 Sugar Hollow Creek-Bee Digi

Bzzz Bzzzz!!! Hey everyone, what's the buzz? Now don't you just love this Bee image. Yes, I knew you were going to say that!!! Well, it is from Sugar Hollow Creek from my Design Team Sister Tracy. Oh when I saw this, I knew I had to put my creative flavor to it!!! You can click on to the store here to get your own. It comes in a set-one bee, one butterfly. Both are gorgeous.

I used some plain ole Crayola markers on the bee and then dabbed it real good with Rangers Distress ink in tea dye. I also glitter up the wings. Now, as you can see, I have dimension to my wings. What I did is made several copies of the bee, colored and cut out the wings. I made a slit in the main bee image next to where I want to place the wing and cut tabs in the wings, stuck them through the whole, then turned back the tab and glued it. It came out perfect. I got them to stick up and give me dimension-that was where I wanted to go!!!

My papers are from Deja Views-called Global Trek. I used the other half of my pearls from last weeks MMSC card on this one. Rangers distress tea die ink and VersaMagic Purple Hydrangea was used. Thanks for stopping by today to see my card. I really appreciate it.
