I am so excited and happy to be apart of this blog hop,
showing off my sweet friend and (Sista) Trudy Sjolander's newest stamp release for Inky Antics.  Whoo-hoo True!  I just love these bees.  They stamp so nice.

Here's how I made the sentiment curve.
 I used my Fiskars stamp press (the small one).  I placed the bee hive image on the press then aligned the sentiment below and curved it to match the curve of the bee hive.  Works like a dream. Just love how clear stamps can do this.

I colored my images using Tombow Markers and an aqua brush.
 I took a watercoloring with Tombow markers class taught by my talented friend Kim Teasdale and used her technique on this card.  Here are the colors I used.
Blue: 452, 451, 528
Gray:N57, N79, 992
Yellow:090, 055, 985

I got to use this awesome set designed by Trudy Sjolander for Inky Antics
SWIRLY BEES CLEAR STAMP SET

The winner will be announced on True's Blog on Monday, March 11th. Your next stop on the hop is BONNIE'S  blog.

How cute and thank you for showing how you made the sentiment curve. Also thank you for using the Tombow water colours as I do not have any Copic markers and it is nice to see that other markers are being used as well.

Bonnie said...

Such a cute card and thanks for reminding me you can actually manipulate the clear stamps. The curved sentiment is great with your design.
