Over at Sparkles Monthly Challenge, we are launching a new challenge today which is Things With Wings.
For my papercraft inspiration I created a tag with a beautiful bee and honeycomb die set – I hope you like it!
I started by covering a chipboard tag with a wash of watered-down white gesso and then applied some Ranger Crackle Texture Paste and left it to dry overnight. Then I stained the crackle and added some shading to the tag, using some Ground Espresso Distress Ink, applying it like watercolour. I cut the honeycomb, flowers, foliage and bees from various colours of Linen Textured Cardstock using a Bee Hive Sizzix Thinlits set by Olivia Rose. I arranged them onto the tag using Crafter’s Companion Glue Tape and to finish, I added a Label Sticker from Tim Holtz that reads “Just Believe”.
I hope you’ll join us at Sparkles Monthly Challenge too, for more inspiration please check out the amazing papercraft projects from my Sparkles Buddies in the Design Team too; we would love for you to join us. Please be sure to check out the rules here.
This tag was a special surprise for my Sister, who loves bees. These are the pretty fairy lights that my sister has in the canopy of her sun umbrella; these bees look so pretty all lit up at night (smile!).
Stay safe and well!
Thanks for joining me today! If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.
