Bee Mine

     My card today is one I made for my 9 year old Granddaughter, Evelyn. This little girl reminds me of her, she loves to wear headbands with things attached to the ends. She's a very special little girl and just like this stamp,  her smile will melt you heart.
      I water colored her using my Arteza real brush pens. She was stamped first with Altenew Permanent Black ink on Strathmore Bristle vellum. I framed her with my Kat Scrappiness Stitched Rectangles die. I also cut a large stitched heart and a few small ones for the inside. I Used a piece of patterned paper from my Altenew 6"x 6" Reflections paper pack for the background. Then I adhered the Bee Girl to the left side and placed the pink heart to the right, just overlapping a little. I used a piece of washi tape and some foam for a flag at the bottom. I used Hero Arts heart gems on her head band and on the large heart. Then I added a little sparkle with my Spectrumnoir Sparkle pen, to her wings, the bees wings and her skirt.
On the inside I stamped the bees and added some hearts with, I heart you. I added a strip of the paper from the front and the big beautiful, Happy Valentines Day, stamp from Clearly Posh Stamps.
