Last weekend I picked up a few new stamping goodies to make Valentines including the Paper Smooches Bee Mine set:
And this is what I mean about struggling with sketches! Was it okay to not go so literal and use a leafy branch instead of a horizontal banner in the design?! I just couldn't make a banner work with my bee:( But by using the branch is the design not so "clean" anymore??? *Sigh*
Other Materials Used: Stampin' Up Baked Brown Sugar cs and Melon Mambo cs, Stampin' Up Fashionable Hearts embosslit, Stampin' Up Melon Mambo marker, Papertrey ink white cs, Papertrey ink Ruby Rose flower stamp and die, Memory Box leafy branch die, Pebbles Seen & Noted pp, Cuttlebug Honeycomb embossing folder, Queen & Co rhinestones, copic markers, glossy accents
And since I used an embossing folder in my design I'm also adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Emboss It
Thanks for all your constructive comments!
