Distress Inks and Honey Bees

Morning everyone and hope you are all well and hopefully join us in our second challenge at A Inky Mess and don't forget you have a month to enter and we are sponsored by Oddball Art.I made this card having a play using my distress inks and new stamps.I pressed the distress inks onto a stamping block then dragged it over the card,I then stamped images with my new Honey Bee stamps from Chocolate Baroque and a little Bit Scenic from Sheena Douglas then added some glitter glue and a little distress ink on flowers and Beehive,then matted and layered on black and red card from Papermill Direct.

  28. Love, love, love these stamps together, Carol! I miss stamping very much, and am looking forward to more time for stamping. Not only are the stamps great together in this fun, summertime scene, but your pretty inky background portrays the busyness of bees beautifully! Wonderful creation! Hugs, de
