Strangely Trendy

Hello.  Welcome.  Have you seen the new thing??  Artist Trading Coins!!  2 1/2 inch circles of art.  These are cute and fun and did I mention fun!  Here are my first Coins......

Squeeee!  Aren't they just adorbs??!!  I started by cutting my coins from orange marbled card using a Sizzix circle die.  Then I used Fossilised Amber DOx ink through Memory Box Honeycomb stencil.  I stamped the backgrounds using various small stamps from Paper Smooches Bee Mine set and Spiced Marmalade distress ink.  I edged the coins with the same ink.  I stamped and fussy cut the large bee and coloured with yellow Promarker and glitter glue.  I matched the sentiments to the background images.

Let's zoom in, zzuubbbb, zzuubbbbbbb

I used the hive image in the background and paired it with the hello honey sentiment

I stamped the two small hearts and the lady bug with the heart in the background and the open love sentiment and filled the letters with red glitter glue.

I stamped the two small bee images and paired them with the bee mine sentiment.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
