Bee Line ATC

Back to my beloved  blues on this buzzy ATC.  The background was made by applying Distress inks in chipped sapphire, tumbled glass & stormy sky with a piece of cut'n'dry foam onto white card.  This was then spattered with drops of water to mix and spread the background and was dried with a heat gun.

Next I used a solid circle foam stamp and Brilliance mediterranean blue ink and stamped several times over the background.  The bee was stamped with vintage sepia Versafine and the obdominal stripes coloured with yellow Souffle pen.  The hydrangea was inked first with dandelion Memento ink and then overstamped with onyx black Versafine.  The word plate was inked with Versamark and heat embossed with Blond Moments fresh satsuma iridescent embossing powder.  Some little reflections were added to the circles with blue Souffle pen (to give the impression of bubbles).  All stamps were from a clear set by Artemio (Belgium).

Two blue gems were adhered with glossy accents and the whole thing edged with iris blue Colorbox chalk ink.
