Bee Happy ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     I'm always happy when I'm working with color, and of course using my Red Rubber Designs Stamps, featuring quite a few on this double spread in my art journal!

     After coloring the background with Lindy's Gang Magicals and Sprays, I used Lindy's Purely White Embossing Powder with the Script Background Unmounted Stamp over both pages. The rest of the stamping was embossed with Midnight Pewter Embossing Powder. Then I used the Distressed Typewriter Bet Stamp (no longer available) to spell "Bee", framed with one of the Rose Wine Labels, that I backed with clear acetate colored with Butterscotch Alcohol Ink.

     "Happy" was embossed with the Vintage Greetings Stamp (also unavailable), and colored like the rest of the stamping, with Lindy's Magicals and Sprays. The Beautiful Butterflies and bees were curled for dimension, with some Clear Wink of Stella added to the wings for a touch of sparkle.


     The bees and flowers with the beads added to them, were stamped with the Be Fabulous Unmounted Rubber Stamp.

     Then I stamped the other flowers with the Floral Collage Cling Mounted Stamp, to go with the script on the background. The lattice design behind them was embossed with the For Everything Unmounted Stamp.

     I had so much fun creating this happy spread! Thanks for looking!
