I took several pictures of a bee and grape hyacinths on May 9th and love this one as its hovering over the flower.
I printed the photo and cut it down to 3x3 1/2" and matted it in brown.
Using the debossed side of my folder( the middle of the honeycomb is raised), I used Versamark ink directly onto the folder and ran it through my big kick machine. Added gold EP and heat set. Even though I didn't get entirely even coverage of the gold EP, I really like the organic looking results.
I heat embossed the sentiment in white and snipped off the first word.
I diecut the word Love and used the negative piece and put gold glitter paper under it, offsetting it for a shadowing effect. I diecut the ampersand from the same sizzix set, this time using the actual diecut &.
Popped up the sending warm fuzzies pieces for added dimension.

This is fabulous, Jeannie! I just love the design and how all the elements come together to make this amazing card! It just all ties together perfectly--the bee DP, the honeycomb, the "warm fuzzies" with the fuzzy bee hovering in the flowers. I can't stop looking at it.
