Queen Bee

Helloooo Sweet Blogging People!

I can't really believe that it's Thursday already! Wowzers, with Monday having been a public holiday, this one has flown away on me here.

Here is a little card, which I made for a friend who worked REALLY hard recently, to make a weekend fun for a lot of people. She really inspired me with her selfless giving. I thought that I could try to honour her hard work, using a 'busy as a bee' idea, and also  try to incorporate a 'best among us' concept.

The images have so much lovely detail that I used a tiny dash of colour to finish them off - it didn't need much.

I used a little glossy accents on the bee's eyes and thorax for some shine and dimension and coloured over the wings with a clear spica pen to add some shimmer.

The focal panel is mounted on another one, embossed with woodgrain and some rhinestones and ribbon finish it off.

I hope she likes it!

Thanks for popping in! I hope that you manage to fit everything in that you needed to do this week :0)

Wow... this is so beautiful. The detail really creates a striking focal point and the touches of colour are perfect for the image.

Nerina your design is bee-utiful! Wonderful accents that bring such fabulous detail throughout. You are so thoughtful to create this card for your friend. It really expresses the thoughts and feelings you had in mind.
