Vera Lane Studio ATC Swap

Hi everyone! There is a fun artist trading card swap going on right now in the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group. The theme is Things With Wings and not only can we use the Vera Lane Studio digital images but we can also use the adorable rubber stamps that Janet Klein designed for AALL & Create.

I chose this sweet bee image from the Pixie Dust set to star on my ATC. Love her to bee-its! I coloured her with a mix of Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils, and fussy cut her leaving the narrow white border. Then she was adhered to black cardstock and fussy cut leaving a narrow black border before she was popped up on foam tape.

The background started as a piece of vintage book paper which was used to mop up yellow and rust Lindy's sprays. A hexagon stamp was inked with the same watery mixture and applied behind where the bee would be placed. A scrap of cardstock spritzed with the same colours was matted with black and adhered along the bottom of the card. The black honeycomb die cut from Tim Holtz was trimmed around and adhered to the top and right side of the card. Inktense pencil activated with a water brush was used to shade inside the openings and next to the bottom edge of the die cut piece. Small circles were doodled onto the plainer part of the background before the words were added with foam tape. Three enamel dots finished off the card.

Thanks for stopping by today to visit with Bee and me. We hope that you will be inspired to play along with this fun swap on the Vera Lane Studio FB page. It's open to join in the fun until February 25. Check out the huge selection of digi stamps at the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop or the sweet selection of Janet's stamps from AALL & Create.

Life is good; so is art.
