Shaker Card

Hello, thanks for your visit, I appreciate
the time you took to visit.  Today we begin a new challenge 
at Back to Basics and Beyond for the next two weeks.
we have #24 Shaker Card.
I would love for you to pop over to the blog for the few
details and of course to see the inspiration from the DT.
I recently went to a Stamparama show at Harrogate.
Even though the morning crowds were very busy, 
I had a marvellous day, I forced myself to buy loads of 
wonderful stamps, including the Bee Happy set from Hobby Art.
Inside my shaker are 3 stamped and fussy cut bees and 
a number of gold coloured gems/
I added glossy accents on the bee on the honeycomb.
If this is your first shaker card, enjoy, take your time, 
the results are such great fun.

Going Round in Circles

Hello again, today we begin a new two weekly challenge at
Make My Monday.  I have chosen Going Round in Circles. 
Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the few details 
also to see the inspiration from the talented design team.
I first created an A4 page,  blending several Distress Inks 
of the yellow and orange tints, with a little green blended.
I then stamped Woodware - Grasses 4 times on the A4 sheet.
I used 3 round dies on the prepared sheet, once assembled.
Added to white card matted onto black on a white card.
I added a few white highlights and added dots around the circles
with a Nano-Liner pen. 
The sentiment is by Crafter's Companion.
