To bee, or not to bee




For the latest Stampotique challenge, Animals, insects and birds, I couldn't make up my mind which to use.Bee, Butterfly, Bee....hmmmm

Here's the Bee tag that I put together. This started off as a plain cream coloured tag. Much inking, stenciling and embossing later it looks like this...



I used Big Bee (which was my first ever stamp design :0) ) and the really useful Daisy Daisy.

I hope you manage to grab a moment over the weekend to hopefully join in with us for the challenge. As always there is a $30 gift certificate up for grabs so why not have a go!! Its an 'any stamp' challenge as its the first one of the month- I bet you have an animal, bird or insect image somewhere in your stash.
I also made a butterfly card...that ones over on my blog.

Have a good one!

Love your bee tag!!!...
I have this bee stamp and other bee stamps too. For some odd (or not so odd). I've always had a fascination of these little creatures.
