Nature Walk - Butterfly Bees

I am still going strong with the Nature Walk set of stamps. This time using two bee images inside an aperture cut with the Butterfly Punch.

Punch a 7.5cm square of  Basic Gray card stock and emboss using the Square Lattice folder.

To line up the bees to fit inside the butterfly, I just placed the punched and embossed piece of card on a slightly larger piece of Very Vanilla and made a light pencil mark at the dip in each of the butterfly wings. I stamped the bees with Basic Gray ink, using my pencil marks as a guide and angling the bees towards the centre. The bodies of the bees have been coloured with a Daffodil Delight marker. 

To add depth, although it is not clear from my picture, when layering up the card I used dimensionals to fix the butterfly layer on top of the bees and used the Snail tape runner to fix this to a square of Daffodil Delight card. The Jewellery Punch and Tiny Tags stamp set have been used to make the little tag and this has been tied around the layers with some silver Elastic Cord, before mounting onto a Basic Black 10cm square card. Finally I added some Rhinestone Jewels to form the body of the butterfly.

Back soon,
