Here’s A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E. Bee-trice! Bee-trice and Berry Beatrice are part of the May Release for CC Designs! LOVE!
Beatrice is stamped with Colorbox Wicked Black Archival ink on Canson Manga heavyweight drawing paper and colored with Distress markers… I do love these markers!!! So if you can’t decide but you think you want them, I’m here to tell you…they’re GREAT! I do think having the right paper makes all the difference though.
I used four markers for her hair…Scattered Straw, teeny bit of Mustard Seed…thought it was a bit something, so I added in a bit of Antique Linen and finally Wild Honey.
For her face I used…Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar and Dried Marigold…scribbled on an imagine sheet from my Stamp a ma jig and mixed together with a wet #2 Grumbacher paint brush (Goldenedge 4620 Round). Her cheeks are Spun Sugar scribbled on the sheet and a wet paint brush.
Her Body is Black Soot, Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed.
I painted the ticket with these same markers and edged with Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool. Pretty much all my paper edges are done, the same way.
I used the NEW ticket die (comes with two sizes) that matches the NEW Bees Knees Logo set. The Buzz Ticket and Happy Bee-Day are from that set also. (Happy Bee-day is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink) I had to use the Grass Border die and the Flower Border die… LOVE them both! So… guess how I crimped the grass that I cut with the Grass Border die???!!! There is an awesome tool (link below) from Quilling Creations… called the Deluxe Crimper… it does strips of paper up to approximately 3/8 in. wide and you can choose between two sizes of crimping… oh me oh my… I fell in love! I love little things anyway and just the thought of having little crimping makes my heart beat faster! hahahahahaha So you’ll be seeing lots of little bits crimped for awhile!
