Floating Bee Card - This technique could not 'bee' any easier!

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

Make a background with the Stamping On Stencils technique using Yellow and Tangerine Inks. Be sure to visit the blog post for a detailed tutorial.

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.
