Thanks for joining me on my Blog.
One of the reasons I wanted to set up a Blog is so that I could join in the fun and frolics of some of the Challenges which go on in the Blogging World, including Sunday Stampers with Hels Sheridan. I really like that Girl! I would love to spend an afternoon with her - not sure much work would get done but I know my chuckle muscles would get a good workout! LOL!!!
Well yesterday's Challenge was Push the Button so here is my little take on the subject.
My Hubby recently became a Bee Keeper after a long time looking into the subject and saving the pennies needed to buy the hive and colony. As this has been the first Winter we have had with the Bees, the extremely cold weather has made him very nervous. However, last weekend (not the one just gone) it was such a lovely day I could put my washing out. I then had to call my Hubby as I could see the Bees very happily going in and out of their Hive . It was a lovely sight I can tell you! Hence the Believe!
Last week I ordered the Bee stamp from Happy Daze and had to "try" it out so this is what I came up with.
Please excuse the colours but they are a little washed out. Probably because I do not have a chance to photograph them in daylight due to work (I did not finish it until late last night!) so it got a little bleached with the flash.
My Hubby thought I was mad as I have even stamped the edges but you never know from what angle anyone could be looking at it.
The canvas was painted "roughly" with gesso and left to dry. I then inked it with DI Wild Honey and then through some sequin waste again with DI Honey and also Rusty Hinge. I then stamped with several different flower stamps in various colours. However, when I was "fiddling" before deciding what to put where I thought that the background was a little too "busy" and dark. So I tentatively sprayed the whole canvas with water and placed a piece of kitchen roll over it to mop up some of the colour. Hey Presto. I was much happier.
