A little heads up for CSSC....

There's a new challenge over at Cowgirls Sunday Stampen Challenge on Sunday and to celebrate a whole load of fab new 'Animals and Bugs' images at CJs shop (with 25% off!!) the theme is ..... guess what? Yes, Animals and Bugs. I've used CJs image 'Bee home', how cute is this little fella?

The image is coloured with promarkers and matted on some black card, I made a little bee using seed beads and wire as an embellishement. I've used bp from my stash, distressed with my craft knife and lots of black soot DI. I used lemon and black velvet ribbon to make the stripes - bees are so fluffy I though the velvet would be great for this. The flowers are made using small punched flowers and some cheapie diecut flowers I got from the pound shop, they were coloured with Daffodil glimmer mist and scrunched up. Once they were dry, I've layered them up, secured them with a little brad and then added some black seed beads to the centres using silicone glue. I've written the sentiment with a black promarker, my friend has a little girl called Honey so I may use this for her birthday lol.

I'm also entering this little bee in the following challenges:
Allsorts: Card for a baby/child
Sentimental Sundays: Its all fun and games
Crafty Cardmakers:Recipe - stickers/punches, orange/yellow, animals/fish (I hope my little bees count)
