Today I have made a card to share at Stamping Sensations August challenge - things with wings.

As I was so lucky and privileged to win the May challenge at Stamping Sensations I thought I should make use of my prize for my August entry. One of the Chocolate Baroque Stamp sets that I won was called Honey Bee so my things with wings are honey bees.

I stamped and heat embossed the image in wow gold pearl EP on hot pressed watercolour paper and then coloured the image with my Zig real brush pens. I put a strip of post it tape across the card to keep a clean line. The sentiment was also heat embossed and to finish I die cut the panel and propped it up on some craft foam.

I was surprised at how quickly this came together and I am pleased with the end result as it is a bit of a departure from my norm. I also really like these stamps. I am new to using unmounted rubber stamps and I am liking the detail.

You can see the shine in this picture:
