Blingy Bee

Hello.  Welcome.  Gosh, half way through June!  Don't time fly when you're having fun.  You are having fun aren't you??  Why not join the Rubber Dance challenge?  It runs through to the end of the month.  There are delicious colours of blue, blue and sandstone, and/or you can make a tag.  That's what I did, and maybe some blue, blue and sandstone as well.  

I used Rubber Dance Round In Circles and Beautiful Bugs and the sentiment is from the Bling Bling set.

I made a brusho background using blues and sandstone brusho's and selected an area I liked and cut my tag using a Sizzix die.  I stamped the large spiral from Round In Circles using Salty Ocean distress oxide.  Then I stamped the linked circle stamp using Antique Linen DOx.  

I stamped embossed and coloured the large bee from Beautiful Bugs.  I used yellow Promarker and irridescent glitter glue on the wings.  I stamped the sentiment with black archival and added more glitter to the sandstone strip in the middle of the tag.  A bit of fluffy wool and done!

 The Rubber Dance challenge runs until the end of the month. You can use the colours and/or make a tag.  Don't forget if you are shopping at Rubber Dance you can get free worldwide shipping with my code GTFreeShip when you spend over €15!  Did you see the new stamps??  Go check em out.  So cool!!
Hop over to the blog to check out more amazing inspiration from the team and to link up your make.  See you there.  Hugz
