Honey, You're Sweet!

Hi Friends! Hope you are warm! We are snuggled in here with the snow outside! It's a good day to create.

Today's card is one I created using a stamp from iCopic.com. It is 'Love Lolita Honeybee' by C.C. Designs. It can be purchased HERE.


Recipe:
'Love Lolita Honeybee' stamp
Memento tuxedo black ink
X-PRESS IT Blending cardstock
Copic markers
   R000, 20, 22, 24, 30, 35, 37, 39,
   Y32, 35, 38
   E00, 11, 25, 31, 37, 50
   W9
   B000, 00
Washi paper adhesive tape
Bo Bunny design paper
American Craft ribbon
Recollection pearls
Bazzill paper trim
Stickles
chalk
SEI rub on

Thought I would share a tip I have been using recently. On my Copic markers I have been replacing the broad nibs with round nibs. The round nibs are stiffer and easier to control than the brush nibs. I use the round nibs in small areas and to outline the outside of an image.





Thanks for stopping by. Let me know if you decide to try my tip. Stay warm. Linda
