I love all the imagery of this line as well as the palette. I decided to showcase the queen bee as a nod to this weeks challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show as they are calling for kings and queens. I always love trying to find a clever way to intrepret their themes! The crown was altered with a bit of alcohol ink to dull it down and fit into the color scheme.
I scattered butterflies that were fussy cut from their paper after spritzing them with Radiant Rains mist. I left many of them with wings raised to add dimension to the piece.
I also used distress stains on this project. I am in total love with these. The only challenge is getting it in all the corners. I simply apply a bit on my craft mat and add with a paintbrush. It is tedious, but so worth it.
The pine cone cut outs also got a splash of glimmer to add texture and a bit of sparkle. They were attached with some bits of chain I recently scored on clearance. I love it when I actually find a use for those bits that I pick up "just because" they are on good deals.
I can't wait to find a spot for my new little clock to hang!
Thank you as always for stopping by, it really means the world to me.
