Good morning everyone xx

As it's Thursday I'm back with another blog for Bee Crafty

Mica Powders
Black onyx and Smokey Grey versafine
Clear embossing powder





Blend Spun Sugar , Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose Distress Inks through the circle easy frame. Remove frame.
Using same inks, randomly blend through the Sunset and Honeycomb D'Inkables. Draw round a few random honeycombs with a black pen
Stamp the Keyboard, Friendship stamp and Sound Waves (Wibble), in black onyx versafine
On seperate piece of card stamp and heat emboss the butterflies and coloyr in with Mica Powders and a water brush
Adhere using 3d glue gel




For the male version blend Iced Spruce and Faded Jeans Distress Oxides and use the Regular Dots D'Inkable
The Dots Sound waves stamp was stamped in Iced Spruce DO and the Life Is Good sentiment in Smokey Grey versafine
The Keyboard was stamped in black onyx versafine


Two different cards using the same elements with a few adaptations.
