This week was a non sponsored week for our CPS Sketch 109, so I pulled out some of my old favorite toys: Honey Bees and Favor It Baby stamp sets from PaperTrey Ink, and some Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday papers and chipboard bee.
I stamped my little scene using some Versamagic Tea leaves ink, Clearsnap's Rouge Chalk Ink, and Ranger's Adirondack Orange. Next I die cut and embossed the image with my Spellbinders Labels 4 die. Before removing it from the die, I airbrushed sky and grass using a Copic Airbrush System and some B23 and YG93 markers.
For the lower scalloped edges, I used a Spellbinders Fancy Scalloped Pierceability die** and then punched holes with my Crop-a-Dile. The tag is from PaperTrey Ink's Favor It Baby set, and button is from my stash. Ribbon is PTI's Hibiscus Burst grosgrain. I used a little dab of Yellow Stickles inside each of the flowers to add some sparkle. Isn't that blue paper happy-paper? I'm almost out of it--must, must get some more!
Thanks for visiting!
**Edited to add: the scalloped border die is a Pierceability; I cut with, but didn't emboss or pierce, because I wanted only casual scallops. Here is a link for those who had asked. HTH!
