Beloved - Queen Bee - Colour Inkspiration Challenge

Hello and welcome back to my blog! I have a card today that I am entering into this week's Colour Inkspiration Challenge. The colours for this challenge are Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Gold and one of the retiring 2021-2023 In Colours. I decided to pick my beloved Polished Pink which I am so sad to see retiring. 

I used the Queen Bee stamp set and coordinating Queen Bee dies, Timeworn Type Embossing Folder and Gilded Leafing.


- Use a piece of Very Vanilla A4 card for the card base. Layer with a piece of Very Vanilla which has been embossed with the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder and had some Gold Gilded Leafing applied.

- Add a layer of Basic Black and then another piece of Very Vanilla which has had the text from the Queen Bee set stamped with second generation stamping using Tuxedo Black ink. 

- Stamp multiple bees and the large flowers from the Queen Bee set onto Very Vanilla card using Tuxedo Black ink. Colour all the flowers (on the bees and the plant) in with both Light and Dark Polished Pink Stampin' Blends. 

- Die cut these pieces and some bees and flowers from Very Vanilla card using the Queen Bee Dies. Colour the die cut bees using Polished Pink Stampin' Blends and the die cut flowers with Polished Pink Ink using a Blending Brush. Apply some Gilded Leafing to both the flowers and bee using Liquid Glue to adhere the leafing.

- Stamp the sentiment from the Queen Bee set on Very Vanilla using Tuxedo Black ink and use the Blending Brush to apply some Polished Pink to the edges of the piece. Adhere all the pieces to the card front. Add a Gold Simply Elegant Trim bow to the large flower. Add Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Gold Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to complete.
