Penny Black - As Sweet as Honey

Hello friends, thanks so much for visiting.  I am stopping in quickly to share a card created using this adorable Penny Black Inc image - I usually stamp off a few when I am working on something and as much as I tried I could not resist any longer- but who can blame me!  My original card can be found HERE.

 Now for a little change of pace - and this adorable bee from Penny Black Inc. -  cute as a bug! clear stamp set.  I have stamped the image onto white card stock using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and coloured it using Chameleon Art Products/Pens - so quick and easy!

The image has been cut/embossed using A2 Curved Matting Basics B Card Creator Etched Dies and the  Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine – 6″ Platform. The card front has been popped up onto the cut/embossed insert only from the Card Creator Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken, using Crafty Foam Tape, after the edges have been trimmed.  The layered card front has been popped up onto the pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra

 I have randomly used the honeycomb stencil to create a background for this adorable little bee.   The sentiment from the happy snippets transparent stamp set has been stamped using Imagine Memento Inks in Tuxedo Black directly onto the card front.  Add a cream Seam Binding double bow to the lower left hand corner of the card and lace flower and a pink button to thecentre of the .bow.
