Black and White Coloring with Busy Bees Stamp Set

June 25, 2017

Hola! I hope you are having a great weekend and enjoying the start of the summer.  Today I'm celebrating my first blog post  as a member of  Honey Bee Stamps - Social Media Design Team. 

Honey Bee Stamps are quite unique. It is also my first time using their supplies and I'm in love.

The brand is well known for being  colourful and cheerful but the rebellious stamper in me couldn't think of doing anything other than a black and white card for today... and as the lack of colour tent to be a bit  dull  I tried several new things to bring the images to life. 

I tried  different papers , different colouring tools, different lay outs, different Honey Bee Stamp sets. 

So here  my 3 best options for this project ( click on any supply in this post to see more)

Look at this little guy! Awww!!! My toddler Emma was fascinated, me too! 

I also wanted to give a sketchy look and feel to the bees and   Derwent Artist's Pencils 6 Black & White Tin Here  were my life savoir  in this mission.  

It was the first time using these pencils. Their are soft , easy to apply and look at the colours in the pictures. They do the job!  There are 3 light colours and 3 dark colours ( I'll talk more about the pencils in my video). When I was making the supply list for this post  I found them in Amazon UK for less than the price I paid for them in my local craft shop. You can get them from £3.99 Here. Incredible! 

For shadowing and lights I  used  3 Faber Castell Pencils colours:   White, Warm Grey and Black. These pencil are a joy, creamy, soft  and provide intense colours. 

Oh ! And I also have a new favourite:  the Small Clear Dew Drops  by Honey Bee Stamps simply stunning. They look like real water drops. If you like Nuvo drops or Glossy Accents you will love this embellishments too.

I stamped the sentiment with Simon Says Stamp Black Ink whilst also using the Tim Holtz Stamping Platform.  I have a mini Misti Stamping Tool and for the size of this card I found easier to work with the Tim Holtz. 

I added dots and lines with white and black Uniball pens. 

This card measures  6"x 6" inches (15 x 15cm).  It is a bit  bigger than my favourite  card size ( C6) and it is the first card I made in this size that I really like.....  So many "first times" for me with this project! Awesome.
