I die cut bumblebees from Basic Black with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits, then adhered them to body size pieces of Crushed Curry. I recreated the same Basic Black discard with Delightful Dijon and embossed with the Hexagons Dynamic TIEF. This was adhered to a slightly wider piece of Whisper White and the bumblebees were placed in position. The greeting is from Best Birds and I used the Stitched Shapes framelits to diecut, you just need to shift it for a 2nd cut to create the rectangle shape. Keep reading after the first photo to see what else I did - told you I hate to waste!
I already had the Basic Black scrap which the bumblees had been cut from, and adhered it to a piece of Whisper White. I then used the bumblebee image from Dragonfly Dreams to fill in the gaps before colouring with the new Watercolor Pencils. Thanks to Paula Dobson, for the colouring idea - loved how you shaded yours and it does make them appear more fluffy, making them pop!
I like them both, but can't decide which I like best!
But wait there's more... Remember the Sunburst birthday cards from my last post? I showed how I had stamped before I diecut the butterfly. Check out what I did with the 'waste' piece of card:
I was happy to use a few pieces on this card that would likely have been in the bin. Hope it leaves you feeling inspired to have a play with your scraps too.
