Sugar Creek Hollow - Bee Tile

I have been wanting to show you this card I made using this gorgeous digi image from Sugar Creek Hollow - I picked it up over at the Crafter's Digital Art Centre.  If you haven't been over there already - you need to check it out!!  It has become my home away from home!  LOL!

I printed this image - (I just LOVE  it) and then coloured it with my SU Chalks, I distressed the edges and added paper piercing and sponging to age it!

I tried not to over colour the sketched images around the edges and concentrated on the body of the bee to add depth.  I love the detail on it's body, it is so true to life.  The wings have been lightly coloured and then had Kindy Glitz added - but you know how it is with shimmer
 - it is so hard to capture in photos!

A strip of lace is added to the torn DP which is then overlapped onto some embossed CS, which has all been sponged and distressed!  Some mini pearls finish off the top corner.  I used a Glitter Pen to add colour and bling to the crown, after it had been chalked.

A thinner strip of lace has been added and knotted to the side of this gorgeous rose - which was in a box of treasures and bling that my friend and SU Demo Ann gave me as she was tidying out her Craft Room - it is so true - one man's junk is another man's treasure - there was so much that I loved in there - thank you Ann - you are so very generous to me, in so many ways!

I will be using this image again - it is just gorgeous and so quick and easy to crate something special with!  Now make sure you pop over and check out the Crafter's Digital Art Centre - there are so many Groups and challenges happening - you won't want to miss out!  Make sure to take the time to say hello to me - I am there greeting all of you - and I am loving it!!

I am linking this to the following challenges:
Lexi's Creations - Something Old - lace and flower

  9. Your bee tile came out gorgeous! I like how you didn't color the leaf (?) under the antenna. That was a big reason that I cut my bee out the other day. It just didn't seem to fit and I had it colored green. Thanks for the tip, now I can do the whole tile and enjoy it!
