My Neglected Bumble Bee

My poor neglected little Bumble Bee......I don't know how it happened when she's so cute!!  She'd been neglected for months before I inked her, then she was coloured with Distress Inks and then neglected again for a few months before being made into card.  Criminal!

As you can see, the skirt could have done with being blended a bit more thoroughly but I really enjoyed colouring her and even chose orange, unusually.  She's had some glamour dust added to her wings and I resisted the temptation to add more to the hearts and flowers.

The papers are Dovecraft Sugar and Spice and an embossed panel of white paper.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Prairie Fairy Fridays - Things with Sparkly Wings
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Stamps R Us - Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss - Happy (orange HAS to be happy, and sparkle makes ME happy!)


  1. gorgeous Susie...she is one of my favourites!!

    hope you have a fab 2012!!


  2. In your defence the time it has taken from inking her to colouring and then making the card you were trying to keep her just for you the hehhee un inked is like preteen and un coloured is like not ready to part with yet... Maybe now you have ink colour and created her once you will not be able to stop using her!! Great card look forward to the next with her, thanks for joining us at Totally Gorjuss this week, hugs Samantha x

  3. My poor Bumble Bee is also neglected! Must remedy that!
