Bee Happy

I'd like to enter this card into the Less is More Challenge  #264: add texture.

For my card I mixed white embossing paste with Distress inks (cracked pistachio, picked raspberry and spiced marmalade) and Applied it through a Memory box stencil (honey) comb) which provided one kind of texture.
The image is from Hot of the press (bee happy) and so is the sentiment. I stamped the bee with Memento black ink on Neenah solar white paper and coloured it with my Spectrum Noir markers. Cut it out
I also  stamped it on the honeycomb (once dry ofcourse) for it's little legs and antenna's.
Raised the image with foamtape for the other texture.

I know honey combs are not pastel coloured, but I felt like it as a happy spring card ;-)

  2. So ingenious! Would never have thought of mixing distress ink into embossing paste. It looks amazing. May have to use that idea sometime so thanks for the inspiration.
