Honey Bee Stamps and the Coloring Challenge Road Trip - Edinburgh

August 28, 2017

Hello everyone,  first  at all I want to send my love and prayers to all my stamping friends in Houston, especially to our Design Team Manager at Honey Bee Stamps Lisa Cisneros who lives there.  I texted her yesterday to let her know that my Sunday Honey Bee Post would be delayed  and she told me about the major flooding in Houston but  I never thought it was that serious. When I saw the news I was shocked and  she still had  the heart to answer me... Amazing.

So  yesterday I was in Edinburgh participating in the Coloring Challenge Road Trip where I had the incredible opportunity to share a day with beautiful people and  two of the favourite stampers in the whole word: Debbie Hughes and Kathy Racoosin.

I'll be sharing a wee video on Instagram here and in my facebook group to share  with you a bit of the event with pictures and some moments I could capture.

Ok so my plan was to create a Honey Bee card during the event and blog about it yesterday  but I was overwhelmed with so much going on there plus it was a long journey starting at 5am and ending at midnight so I didn' really  have the chance to do it really.

Kathy was teaching us her top tips with alcohol markers and  finishing touches. We were all sharing information about tools and materials. Debbie had her watercolour palette exposed  and she was also doing some beautiful watercolouring .. with such distractions  I was lucky  to be able to  finish a card using Sweet as Honey Stamp Set.

How I did it

  • I  simply stamped the images using Antique Linen Distress ink on Canson Watercolour paper.
  • I made a  mask for the flowers  using a post it note to be able to overlay the images and  stamp  the flower bouquet . 
  • I applied watercolour pencils in the same way I showed in a previous  video here
  • I  stamped the sentiment using Onix Black Versafine ink and  I die cut the panel using   A2 Double Stitched Frames dies by Honey Bee.
  •  I  added white and black dots over the flowers with Uni-ball pens
  •  I glued the panel  down on a navy  piece of cardstock.
  •  I embellished with Silver Nuvo Drops and clear sequins.
  • I was teasing new watercolor pencils not yet released but you can use any  watercolor medium you have available.
