A quick post from me, this is my entry for this week's challenge over at Less Is More where the theme is "Little Creatures". I didn't think I had anything suitable until I came across the Tag-Its #3 set by Papertrey Ink which was purchased from that famous auction site some time ago.

I coloured the flowers with a mix of Aquamarkers then added the black flower centres afterwards. The bees were stamped in Versafine Onyx Black then coloured with a yellow Aquamarker. I added the black loops by hand then decided it was lacking something, so I sponged Distress Ink in Mustard Seed to give the impression of sunshine. I had intended for the overall effect to be more like a watercolour, hence the stamping was onto watercolour cardstock, but I decided that no-one would know what the little creatures were if they were too blurry!
