Emerald City Crafts Challenge #7

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Well here we are the first Friday of the month and that can only mean a new challenge over at Emerald City Crafts Challenge Blog.

The winner and top 3 have been chosen by the Design Team and myself.
We also have a new member to the team and check out her first project using the Madamoiselle Ephemera from Linda Simpson Designs.

Annie has left us which is very sad but we are hoping that she will return later in the year.
She is off on her travels and we wish her all the very best for 2018.

Here is my card, I have used the Hexagonal Stencil from the website and IndigoBlu Victorian Garden stamps.

Step by Step

1. 5 x 7 white base card.
2. Matted and layered blue card.
3. To create the topper I used Distress Oxides Faded Jeansand the Hexagonal stencil in 2 corners.
4. I then stamped the foliage first and second generation using black Archival ink, I stamped the sentiment and 3 bees which I have colours the bodies.
5. To finish off I cut around the wings of one of the bees.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Inspiration Destination #141 - Anything Goes
The Crafty Addicts #44 - AG twist Winter Blues
Lemon Shortbread #58 - Anything Goes
TTCRD - Always Anything Goes
Crafting with an Attitude #35 - Anything Goes
