'B' ees.......Knees......... !


I just couldn't wait to see what this week's challenge was on Less is More this morning!  and was still in my PJs when I logged on to check it out - what am I like eh?   Obsessed? Moi ?  maybe just a tad !!!!

This week the theme is 'Monogram' and I have to confess that a design didn't immediately spring to mind.   I pondered on it for some time before settling on this design for my card.

Now I know I don't have any suitable alphabet stamps from which to select a letter, so I set about creating one on the computer, printing it out in brown ink.  I cut the 'B' out using a nestie then stamped the tiny bee stamp from Crafty Individuals in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, adding a little colour using Copics.  I added Glossy Accents to the 'B' and also the bodies and heads of the bees to give them some dimension. 

Here's a close up view so you can see the effect more clearly.

The flower heads design along the bottom was stamped with a Debbie Moore stamp from her Secret Garden set. 

That's my submission for Less is More this week, hope you've enjoyed seeing it.
