You're Sweet as Honey - AHSC #104 Top 3 Winner, Color Dare #138 Diamond Winner


The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #104, is a card I've wanted to do and a favorite....triple time stamping technique.  I chose to use the colors for this week's ColorMyHeart Color Dare #138 by combining a sketch and color challenge and feel I have accomplished both with this card.  Using a favorite stamp set of mine C1537 Honeycomb Flair, I triple time stamped a variety of honeycombs and colors (Smoothie, Sunset, Canary, Pear, Juniper) on cardstock White Daisy...using the Atlantic Hearts sketch below.  

Please check out the Design Teams papercrafting at Atlantic Hearts and ColorMyHeart Challenges...they are very inspiring and there is still time to enter either of these challenges.  
The mat for each of the triple time stamping was made from Smoothie cardstock.  Using the stamp set B1374 Bee Happy, stamped 3 of the Bees and colored with Shin-Han pens (closest to the colors in the color dare challenge) and then fussy-cut each of the bees and placed on Card with 3D Thin Foam Tape, along with three coordinating honeycombs raised.  

Picture below shows the layers of raised images.  Added a little bit of color on the bees' faces and added liquid glass to make them round and liquid glass on their feet.  Put a second layer of wings on the bees, curled second layer up and put some Wink of Stella on wings to make them look transparent.  Added a small jewel to the center of the flower for some embellishment and stamped on the white cardstock the sentiment from the Bee Happy stamp set.  Still needed something on the right-hand corner, so I stamped, colored, fussy-cut and layered the fourth Bee from the stamp and he's sitting on the mat.  Stamped inside of card with some more colored honeycombs to finish off card.
