A Taste of Honey.....

Hello everyone: I have a card to share with you, made with one of the sweetest and sadly retired, Stampin' Up! sets called "Just Buzzing By.....", I mean, this little bees are just adorable.
But this time I only used the Honey Jar, that reminds me a lot of the one Winnie the Poo always treasured and constantly was eating from.
This card will be entered onto a couple of challenges, one of them is the "Less is More", this time the talented gals of the DT want us to make a "ONE LAYER" card.

This image was stamped onto a blank card base, the kind I always use for my cards. I stamped it with Stazon Dove Gray ink and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps dipped in baby oil.  The circles around this jar were made with one circle die, I just draw around the inside and then the outside of it with  my pencils.
Then, using a stencil, I sponged the Honeycomb image with Hello Honey ink and stamped the sentiment from a retired Flourishes stamp set called "Apple of my Eye", by Marcella Hawley, the little bees are from a Power Poppy set called Dynamic Duos.....Foxglove and Ranunculus, both this bees were carefully snipped off the stamp just so I can use them on other cards, I keep them in a little ziplock bag taped to the back of the set.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

I stamped the sentiment and sponged the Honeycomb border with Hello Honey.

I'm linking my card onto this challenges.

Hugs from Maria.

Your colouring on that honeypot is superb Maria! Yes, all it needs is the word 'hunny' to be an exact replica of the Winnie the Pooh one. Gorgeous stenciling too and that bee is so sweet. A fabulous make. Thank you so much for popping this in at the Less is More challenge.
