Sending Loads of Love | Little Pickup Honey Bee Stamps

March 12, 2018

Hello everyone! Today is my Honey Bee Stamps day! Yay... and for this bright and cheerful card I used Little pickup stamp set and Sending you Sentiments Stamp Set.

This card measures 5- 1/4" x 7-1/4" inches.  The card base is made out of navy blue cardstock.

I stamped the images on Bristol Smooth Paper with Black Ink by Says Stamp.  I like this deep black ink as it doesn't bleed or vanish when applying water-based media on it. 

I used the Tim Holtz Stamping Platform to easy the stamping.

Once the ink was dry I added colors using Zigs. I traced a circle with a yellow marker above the little pickup and then using a water brush I spread that yellow pigment to fill the circumference with it, so the yellow space in this card was fully colored with a yellow  Zig. 

There is a couple of videos on my Youtube Channel that explains the coloring process and little things I do to make the images pop a bit more. click here to watch Zigs coloring video, click here to see coloring tips video.  

To add colors to the background  I used a  blending tool and I applied  Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink above the yellow area,  then Wilted Violet and then Salty Ocean  Distress Oxide Inks and I spray water. I placed the spray bottle far away from the paper to get tiny drops of water on the paper and get soft tiny white spots.

I also applied Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Brush and I embellished with Holiday Cheer Nuvo Glitter Drops and Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

That's all for today.  Thanks for stopping by!
