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

Funky Fossil Designs have five fabulous new stamp sets that will be released this coming Sunday, 10th May. 


I have made this sample using one of the sets called "Bee's Knees", it's such a fun set which I'm sure will be a popular choice.

For this card, I started off with a white background and covered it in blended "Antique Linen" Distress Oxide Ink. I coloured the lower half of the card using two shades of green Distress Oxide Inks:  Peeled Paint and Forest Moss.

I then stamped the daisies and the sentiment in Versafine "Vintage Sepia" ink.

I used "Rusty Hinge" Distress Oxide through the"Micro Squares" stencil in random areas.  I then used "Vintage Photo" Distress Oxide Ink through the "Micro Dot" stencil, again in random areas.

I used "Vintage Photo" Distress Oxide Ink through the "Fierce Words" stencil to add the "Wild" word.

I used Versafine Clair "Pinecone" dark brown ink to stamp the bee.  I then used the "Dotty Circle Background" stencil to create the bee flight path from one flower to the next.  I coloured the bee using Arteza Brush Pens and a Sakura Gelly Roll pen on the wings to give a gorgeous shimmer.

I coloured the petals using a white Posca Pen and used Forest Moss Distress Oxide ink to colour the leaves.
