Bee happy ... again!

Another 'Bee happy' card, this time using the sketch given for Sketch Saturday 263:

I printed the coloured hexagons and then cut them out individually, mounting on to an ivory card blank, stamping some with the little bee stamp by Jo Capper-Sandon from Stampotique. As with the previous similar card, the sentiment was generated on my letratag with yellow plastic tape.

(Note to self: it would have been easier to have printed plain hexagons on to coloured card, rather than digitally colour the hexagons and print on to white card - had to be very careful not to show any of the white at the edges.)

Difficult to get a photo that evenly showed the card blank without the shadowy bit at the top, which isn't there, of course, in real life.

This is also for:

Less is more 124: hexagons
Addicted to stamps and more 49: CAS
Order of the opus gluei 159: give me wings
Bunny Zoe June: wings


  1. Great array of hexagons with perfectly positioned bees.
