Bee Happy

Used the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #117 and combined it with the ColorMyHeart Color Dare #151.  I love working with hexagons so decided to go with the exact pattern in the Sketch. Rather than stamping the hexagons, I used the CTMH Fundamental Papers for each of the colors in the Challenge and cut them using Cricut Design Space modifying the size.  The hexagons were placed on card and raised with 3D Thin Foam Tape on all except the sorbet honeycomb which I used the regular Foam Tape giving those another level. Stamped several bees, colored the bees in unconventional lagoon (because anything goes in scrapping or was it because there was no yellow in the color challenge) fussy-cut, added liquid glass on body and clear Wink of Stella on the wings and placed on each sorbet honeycomb.  Added Sentiment from Bugaboo Digi Stamps, and cut three hexagons out of the Lagoon honeycombs and placed on upper right-hand corner of card and added liquid glass to the center of each for an embellishment.
