I've been working on some Valentine cards for my family and designed this one for my DD. She is 24 and very active, like a little bee! She mentioned to me just this last week that IF she ever decided to get a tattoo, it would be of a pink and gray bee, a tiny one. Well, this is a thought, I can make a card for her that will mean something to her and I can enter it into the MoxieFabWorld Gray is the new Black challenge :)Do any or all of you out there suffer from tying everything back into stamping and creating? Do you see an article of clothing and think, oh! I must make a card with that colour combo? Do you save something from packaging to make something else with it? Maybe I'm just weird, but it happens to me all of the time. This flower is made from a Spellbinders Flowerability bouquet that I embossed with the die and tan mat, added a jeweled center and added some loops of gray twill (the handles from an Anthropologie bag !) that I thought gave the flower a nice homey look.
The bee is a Pink Paislee stamp from the Queen Bee series and I stamped once on the pink cs and the sparkly bee wings were stamped with SU basic gray ink onto some SU sparkly white cs and I then went over the sections with a clear Spica sparkly pen and a pink Spica that I used on the wing edges. The polka dot gray paper is some old SU and the circular border is a PTI die (1st time that I am using it ~ love it!) I hope she likes this :)
