Don't Worry...


 

I haven't really attempted one layer cards, so I thought I'd challenge myself to create a one for the Less is More sketch this week for my "Bee Happy" card.  I created the hexagon background using the Crafter's Workshop Mini Punchinella Template and Scattered Straw and Wild Honey Distress Ink, overstamped the Stampendous Buzzin Blooms in Momento Black Ink then used a water brush to highlight the flowers and bee in Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink, before adding the stamped sentiment and drawing in the black borders and bee trail, finally adding glossy highlights to the flowers and bee using Dimensional Magic - I love how it makes them look like amber.  Bee-cause you can see them in the sky I'm linking this up to CAS-ual Fridays On Cloud 9 too!

Hope you will "Bee Happy" this weekend!
