This is for Michelle's Nothing Sweeter Than Honey WTUI challenge to use a bee or honeycomb or black and yellow for National Honey Month. Mmm, just thinking about brings back the smell of when we were recovering honey from the combs.
The honeycomb stamp I'm expecting still hasn't arrived, so I went with the colours.
I stamped a piece of yellow card with IO's Cover-a-Card Paisley Crystal and embossed it with black (it looks a bit shiny in the photo, but it is black!).
I was going to use the whole piece as the base, but it was a bit overwhelming so I cut two ric-rac strips with MFT's Jumbo Ric-Rac. Spellbinders Lotus Pendant cut from black and embossed with black EP.
Dahlia cut in 3 sizes from yellow card, embossed and sponged with more yellow. Black sponging and stitching lines around the edge. I curved the petals slightly and layered them up with foam, adding black pearls for the centre. I finished it off with some green foliage and a sentiment from SNSS.
