Funky Fossil Designs New Stamp Preview May 2020 - The Bee's Knees

Funky Fossil Designs will be launching five new clear stamp sets this Sunday 10th May.

For this sample, I have used "The Bee's Knees" stamp set.

I started this card by creating a landscape using Distress Oxide Inks.  For the sky, I used "Tumbled Glass" and for the grass area I used a base of "Twisted Citron" then used "Mowed Lawn" through the Funky Fossil "Random Rectangles" stencil.

On a white piece of card, I stamped the various toadstools in Versafine "Vintage Sepia" brown ink.  I coloured them with various Distress Oxide Inks and then fussy cut the shapes.

I glued the toadstools into position and then stamped the bees using Versafine Clair "Pinecone" brown ink and then stamped the sentiment in Versafine "Vintage Sepia".  I coloured the bees using Distress Oxide "Wild Honey" ink and gave the wings a shimmer using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  I added some dots to create the bee flight path using a fine tip black pen.

To create the look of a meadow I painted in some grass using various shades of green Distress Oxide Inks.  I used a white Posca Pen to add some dots to give the impression of flowers growing.
