Create a simple floating bee to adorn the front of a card with the Let It Bee stamp set.
I am captivated by the busy bees in my garden and wanted to create the illusion that this one was hovering over the surface of my card.
Floating Bee Technique
Stamp the bumble bee with India Ink. Add color to select portions of the bee with a yellow marker. Imagine the light source is coming from above and to the right of the bee. Draw a faint shadow along the bottom of the bee with a pale gray marker. You'll be amazed at just how much dimension this one step will achieve.
Draw highlights with a white gel pen. This really makes the little bee image pop!
Let's take a look at the finished card.
I hope you will give this quick and easy technique a try. It is sure to 'bee'-come one of your favorites. Happy Stamping!
