Bee Happy Jungle

Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog     Challenge #20-In the Jungle-the Mighty Jungle
{Freshly Made} Sketches     FMS4-Sketch
Since I'm entering this at Quirky Crafts Challenge I decided to go a little quirky with the jungle theme. 
I'm allergic to bee stings so they qualify for danger in my jungle of life. I created the sentiment on the tag on the computer with the Brody Font and printed it on Barely Banana card stock and then cut out the tag, stamped it, inked around the edges and tied the cord knot. I used my water brush and ink pad to do the shading on the bee hive after I had stamped it with Soft Suede on the Banana card stock, cut it out and popped it up with dimensionals.

Supplies: 4" X 5 1/2" Soft Suede Card Blank, Papers: Stampin Up-Barely Banana, River Rock, Designer Series Paper Botanical Gazette, Stamps: Local King Rubber Stamp-Bee Wax, Busy Bees, Ink: Stampin Up-So Saffron, Soft Suede, Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, Ellison Thick Cuts-Tags, Traditional, cord unknown, Stampin Up dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥
