Here's the inside:
and the sketch:
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I bought a handful of wood mount rubber stamps from a clearance bin at a big box craft store. Along with a black ink pad, I thought I'd try my hand at stamping. Fast forward to today, I finally inked up one of the stamps! Yay me! Glad I waited the, oh, 7 years to ink and color Pooh Bear, because back then my mad coloring skilz weren't so mad. (Not to say they are mad now, just better.) Anyway, I mirrored the sketch to have my negative die cut on the other side. The paper used to die cut the heart has a bit of shimmer to it, and therefore, it was a bit hard to photograph. Just when I was about to snap pictures, I had an epiphany: This needs a bee! Back up to the craft cave I went in search of this bee stamp. (I knew I had it, I used it before) I had to do the stamp kissing thing as it's actually buzzing in the opposite direction (I used the solid circle stamp from PS - Hullabaloo for the kiss. That's why it's in my supplies list) I traced the image with a black marker as it doesn't come out very dark, then colored with white and yellow Prismacolor pencils. I hand drew it's flighty flight path. There. THAT'S better! LOL!
Well, that's it for today. I think. I hear my wine bottle calling me, so I must go comfort it. (wink!) Have a great evening and stay crafty my friends!
