i forgot to post this card several weeks ago when i created it for the may taylored expressions maker challenge. the theme back in may was to create a card using the masking technique. i die cut the hexagon honeycomb pattern from cardstock & used the negative pieces to create a mask. then i applied a good amount of ink to create the honeycomb design on the card base. to make the sweet bee i used a layering stencil which makes it super easy to apply the three colors of ink.
The Secret Life of Bees - have you read it or watched it? i have not yet seen the movie adaptation that came out several years ago but the book is one of my favorites.
