Buzz buzz buzz

I've been having a play with adding drops of concentrated liquid watercolour to various products to give them colour, or change their existing colour.

For this card, I added a single drop of yellow to a spatulaful of Ranger Opaque Matte Texture Paste in a paint palette and used a cocktail stick to blend the colour. Then I applied it to the card through a honeycomb patterned mask.

The bee is an old Raindrops on Roses stamp, heat embossed, coloured with Promarkers and fussy cut. I finished the wings with Stickles and the  eyes with Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

I am sharing this with
