Beeautiful for CYCI#131

This is going to be a quick post, the monsoon has hit here in the desert and I’m afraid I’m going to lose power any minute. It’s beautiful here when it storms, but it can be viscious! Right now the thunder is so loud it is shaking the glasses in my cabinets! Crazy!

It’s a perfect time for a lovely flower card, wouldn’t you say?

I decided to play along with the Can You Case It #131 Color Challenge, which was to use Grays, Yellows and Black. I stamped the flowers and bees using our River Stone True Color Fusion Ink Pad and then colored the centers with the new Journey Color Splash Pencils. I love the pure gorgeous color of these pencils, they don’t get washed out like some watercolor pencils do, they keep true to the color.

In this instance I used my Medium Journey Blending Brush (TO-0098) filled with water to dab a puddle of the color from the tip of the pencil and then painted in the centers and the stripes on my little bee. There are so many other ways to use the pencils too! This was my first time to use them, I can’t wait to play more!

Now I’m going to turn the computer off and make sure I have some candles convenient!

Happy Stamping!
