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.
