What I made...
Lindsay (the owner and designer of LEJ Designs), recently finished a gorgeous Bee digi image. I was so eager to use this image, so chose to make a card that used a summer insect and lovely bright sunny yellow in my make.

This is what I made.....




The image was gorgeously shaded, which means that it took very little to colour. 
I printed off three bee's and cut them up to make it a decoupage look.

Each layer I painted with black and yellow distress inks and a water brush. For the eyes and the wings I used mica powder, crackle glaze and glitter. 

The backing was done with a honeycomb stencil, which I embossed, drew round, painted with mod podge and glitter...

I hope this cheers you up with the lovely sunshine yellow.

It doesn't scream 'the sun has got his hat on', but if we all made the same kind of thing, it would be boring :-) 

I hope you will pop over to the shop and the blog and play along with us over on the LEJ Designs Challenge Blog.

Hugs and <3 

Lisa xxxxx
