Whussup???



My new rubbah from Stamping Bella arrived yesterday...yipppeeeee! New Kettos, Huggabuggs, a Stella...soooooo much choice. I was opening the package wondering how I was going to decide what to use first, when this adorable Ketto Bee fell out right beside the Whussup sentiment...PERFECT! 

The layout for this card is from Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch #09. The bee is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and I coloured him with two copics..I know...only two! He's cut out with circle Nestabilities and layered onto a scallop of basic grey. I added yellow Stickles to his body and Glamour Dust glitter to his wings...he's definitely a handsome bee!  :)

The black and white paper is from my stash, but the yellow paper is brand new. I picked it up at Scrapbooker's Paradise in Calgary last week {{{waves...hi Gloria!}}}, along with plenty of other cool papers that weighed down my suitcase! LOL! The yellow paper is from Chatterbox and it's flocked velvet...it has wonderful texture!

I added some ribbon from my stash and a patterned Prima. For the center of the flower I punched a small circle from the Chatterbox paper then added a Lemonade Bella Bauble. The sentiment is tucked in behind. This card was super quick to make...the longest part was waiting for the Stickles to dry. LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen

This card is fantastic! It has a very vintage, classy feel to it while still being so much fun (I think it's the papers you chose, they are awesome!) I love that you kept the bee simple - no elaborate shading or piecing or anything like that! Now I want that stamp!
Thank you for sharing!
