Honey Bee Stamps New Release Blog Hop!

Hi all!  It's FINALLY here!  Welcome to the Honey Bee Stamps Blog Swim!  It's an ocean-themed release so yes, we're having a swim, not a hop!  Everything is available for purchase Now in our shop HERE.  And we're going to Shellabrate with some sweet prizes! ;)  TWO lucky winners will each receive a $50 gift certificate to the Honey Bee store!  All you have to do is comment on the Honey Bee stamps Blog, as well as all of the other designers, by July 16th.  Winners will be announced July 17th at Noon PST.  The fun gets started on the Honey Bee Blog HERE!

My first card features the lovely Mermaid Song stamp set.  I love that this image is so big.  This card measures about 4 1/2 x 4 1/2, to give you an idea.  I stamped it on watercolor paper then used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to color everything in.  I added the Hello dies (cut out with Blu Raspberry and Smooth White card stocks) without trying to cover up too much of the image.




For my second card, I used the sweet Ocean Bliss stamp set.  I colored the mermaid with Copics then covered the rock with Desert Oasis Sand.  I love the texture the sand adds to the finished card!  The 'waves' were hand cut from vellum and white card stock.  I used Copics on the backside of the vellum to color in the waves.  I also curved the 'Wish you were' part of the sentiment to go with the curve of my 'sun'.




Next up on the Blog Swim is Bibi!  Remember to comment along the way for your chance to WIN!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,
Angel
