Bee Mine Valentines Day Card

I've been spending a huge amount of time in my craft room lately. I was diagnosed with severe obstructive sleep apnea back in December, and it took until a couple weeks ago to get my APAP machine. I'm beginning to come back to life, and the first thing I wanted to do was craft. Here's a card I made last night using the Country Bee stamp and Thin Cut (on sale in CTMH's Stamptacular sale for only $5).

I saw someone else use the bee with "mine," which I thought was cute, so I made my own version. I used scraps from last year's CTMH Valentine's Day paper collection for my background banners. It's difficult to capture in a picture, but I splattered pink shimmer over the card panel before adhereing the bee and sequins. The bee was stamped in Sapphire ink, lightly colored with color pencils, then covered with Liquid Glass. That last thing was an accident. I meant to only put a dot of liquid glass down to adhere my bow, but I squeezed too hard and it blobbed all over. I went with it, using my finger to smear the liquid glass over the entire image.

Off to do writerly kinds of things. If I ever hope to have another book published, I need to do the hard, behind-the-scenes work of getting a proposal written.

Until next time,
