Blending and Bees

Morning and I have three DT posts today-the third one is for the ATG/Blended Background challenge at 613 Avenue Create.All stamps and stamed sentiment from Chocolate Baroque.

I blended hickory smoke and fossilised amber oxides-then I sprayed a crackle stencil from Artistic Flair with water then pressed it onto the background to take off the ink.
I stamped and cut out the sunflower coloured with promarkers and glossy accents on the wings-the larger Bee wact coloured with promarkers-cut out and added three layers of ultra thick embossing powder then added on a 3-D sticky pad.The number under the flower was from a T.roll/Kitchen roll inner,little wooden Bee from Special Things-I stamped honey Bee on frayed material and a couple of dried ink pieces from paint tubes some white splatters which went everywhere except three on the actual card and done.Can you spot the Tracy Evans inspiration lol ?
