Mr. B

Today I’m playing with a fun new image from Dustin Pike called Sting.  I colored him with Copic Markers and then masked the bee and flower and sponged in the background using Ranger Distress Broken China ink. Next I added my texture with Flower Soft.

I used a little Christmas Green Flower Soft and then finished the grass area with Sage Ultra Fine Flower Soft. I made his head and legs fuzzy with Black Ultra Fine. I added Toffee Ultra Fine to the flower center. As a final fuzzy step I added a couple thin lines of Flower Soft glue and 3 glue dots (right off the sheet so they were spaced nicely!) and sprinkled on Black Ultra Fine Flower Soft.

Today’s card is for this week’s High Hopes Challenge!
