Twofer Card Challenge - Bees

Hi there ~ Today I'm sharing a card I created for one of my all-time favorite challenges...Darnell's Twofer Challenge!   I missed the deadline last month, so I was determined to complete my entry on time this month ~

I love these cute little bees...please excuse the bright yellow - The color is much softer in person. I think it's the lamp I use to photograph my cards :) 
For my first card, I stenciled the background clouds and die cut the apertures. The bees were colored with Copic markers, the glasses and heart were smothered with Glossy Accents and the wings were accented with a clear sparkle pen. 


My twofer ~

I needed a birthday card, so I chose one of the bees looking to pollinate the flower. I used a honeycomb stencil for a soft background and added a sentiment and a few sparkly sequins...and my Twofer was done! Here is a pic of both cards ~

Why create one card when you can create two? If you would like to play along, pop on over to Darnell's Twofer are the rules:

Ha! I JUST finished mine, Barb!!! Well. now I don't even think I'll post them - no way near as BEE-U-tiful as these two cuties! LOve those sweet bees [especially the near-sighted one], your wonderful stenciled honeycomb - I'd make a bee-line to that bloom, too!

These are sooo cute Barb, love the soft blended backgrounds you created!

Darnell said...

You're the sweetest, Barb, and your cards reflect that! These are so adorable using that set of plump and happy bees! (I want to name them and tell their story, lol! I'm in love with that little one with glasses!) As cute as they are, they aren't just bees stamped on a card front. You've created awesome and different designs and added sensational expert details on each. I love the stenciling and apertures on your first card and the stenciling and pollination happening on your second card! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #17! Hugs, Darnell

I'm so pleased you made it this month, Barb, it's always a joy to see your take on our prompts! This CAS twofer is a delight ... those little bees peeking out from their cloud filled windows are just adorable ... and I love the soft honeycomb stencilling behind sweet bloom ... such a perfect spot for this nectar searching honey bee! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)
