Honey Bee

A week gone by already!  I'm here sharing my creation for Outlawz Sketch.  We're sponsored this month by Through The Craft Room Door.  For my inspiration I'm using a lovely image from Small and Round called Honey Bee 

I've coloured the image with Copcis and a white gel pen.  The edges of the image and all my design papers have been distressed using a Tonic Solutions tool.

Here's our sketch for this week

My design papers are from Joy Craft.  I've kept the colour pallet simple to two colours.  I've also used some black card.

The butterfly chip board embellishments I found at Scrap and Craft.  My final addition a large paper flower I found in Hobby Craft.

Hope you like my inspiration for this week end we see you at the challenge
