Dragonfly Dreams Bee Card from Stampin’ Up!

This weeks challenge at the Global Design Project is to make a card featuring a winged creature! I love bumble bees. I fell in love with this chubby little chap as soon as I saw the Dragonfly dreams stamp set.

Dragonfly Dreams Bee Card

Isn’t the bee beeautiful?  I stamped onto watercolour paper which was cut out with our stitched framelit dies (which are still available but not in a catalogue, click the link in the items used at the bottom of this post if you wish to order) which I love as you get three shapes of dies in 3 sizes for each shape and 12 dies in total.

I then coloured with our marker pens and a blender pen and outlined him with a sahara sand marker.  The card base is made from Kraft cardstock and I stamped the bee in black ink.  It looks so striking on the kraft background.

I then finished it off with our gorgeous burlap ribbon and linen thread.

We would love you to play along this week at the Global Design Project and made something using the challenge outlined below.  Pop on over to the Global Design Project to see what the other design team members have made and also see the instructions on how to play along.
