I'm back with another Bellarific Friday make... this time we're using stamps from the current release. One of my favourites was this gorgeous Tiny Townie Busy Bee.. which I've coloured and fussy cut, along with the bees that also come in the set.
For the background, I've stencilled through a hexagon shape using Distress Oxides onto a diecut panel, then splattered first with water, then with gold watercolour paint. I adhered the image and the bees to this panel with foam pads, and then added the sentiment.

I do wish you could see the gold and the sparkle in real life - it's so difficult to get a good photo showing the effect. Ah well, you'll just have to imagine!
