Buzzing By

Thank you for buzzing by today.

I bought this Woodware set last week and decided to have a play with it today.  I made two watercoloured  cards and then as an afterthought  stamped onto a piece of a gelli plate print for this card

I used three Promarkers to add just a little colour and a white gel pen to brighten it up a bit.  The edge was tinted with a distress ink and I added glitter to the bee's wings and spotted some glitter randomly around the top right hand corner.

While the dinner was cooking I noticed, while doing some blog visiting, a  blog I've not seen before so decided this would fit the challenge quite well.

I would like to join in at the Quirky Crafts Challenge #4 Things with Wings
