Excuse today’s pun!
When you create a project with bees, it has to start with a Bumblebee and Basic Black colour combination.
One of the designs in the In Good Taste DSP has a mosaic pattern. Cutting a shape around the various hexagons creates the honeycomb shape. Sponge Daubers, Bumblebee and Soft Suede Ink then help to colour it.
The bees are from the Iconic Dies and I have added a piece of Basic Black behind the outline of the body. A Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker colours the legs and antennae. Wink of Stella is added to the wings for a little bit of sparkle.
The Lovely You Stamp Set provides the sentiment. It had to be ‘just because’ with these bees as it makes me smile and think of my Dad.
Today, it is six months since we lost him to COVID. He loved all things nature and his sense of humour would have loved this play on words. I can imagine him chuckling at this project.
A length of the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack, tied in a knot around the edge of the sentiment adds an extra touch.
Finally, the bees are raised up on Mini Dimensionals.
