Artist Trading Coin using Indigoblu "Bumble Bee"
I absolutely love the Indigoblu "Bumble Bee" stamp and decided to make this Artist Trading Coin.
I had a section of patterned paper with a bee design on it. I smeared some Gesson over the surface and left to dry. I then stamped the Bee image, using Versafine Ink, onto the Gesso surface. Die cut the circle and then inked the edges of the disc.
On a separate piece of card, I stamped the Bee again and cut the shape out, with the exception of the tricky legs. I coloured the body of the Bee with a gold coloured Promarker. I coloured the wings with a Sakura Jelly Roll pen, which added a shimmer look to the wings. I added a clear sticky pad below the wing to give the look that the wings are lifted. The body of the Bee I stuck flat to the disc. Finally, I added some tiny sticky Adornit letters to spell the words "Bee Happy".
