This card has a combination of the very old, the bees, from a retired Flourishes set and the very new, the Peony, from a recently released set from Altenew called Peony Bouquet, this set has dies but I don't have them so, I just fussy cut the flower and the leaves, I think I've gotten better at fussy cutting, I've been doing it a lot lately.
For this panel, I sponged some SU Hello Honey ink using the stencil and then, I stamped the flower and the leaves onto some Ninah Solar White card stock using some Altenew inks, cut them and paste them so I could stamp the little bees to follow the sketch, well the sketch is in reverse but I had to change it because the little bees are facing to the right.
As always, I added a bit of highlights to the petals of my flower and the bees with Prismacolor pencils. Here is a look at the finished inside.
The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Best Day Ever.
This is the sketch that inspired my card
And CASology's CUE CARD
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
