Penny Black " Bee Costume"

Another Penny Black stamp, love this cutie, " bee costume", I'd love to see that in real life. When I was a teenager I had a big ginger cat called Tiger, he was a real softy , one day I tried the duffel coat from my Paddington bear on him , and the red wellies, he didn't like the wellies ,so shot out of my bedroom and out of the front door still wearing the duffel coat. He disappeared for over an hour, when my Mum saw him she didn't see the funny side, unlike me .....what a wicked girl was I !

I've coloured my image with flex and promarkers markers . I've used crystal and yellow stickles glitter, the papers are first edition j'adore . The yellow card is bazil basics and the black matt is just the edges ruled with a black flex marker to make a framed effect. The little bee hive and bee are old buttons from a pack bought at Hobby craft.

I love promarkers : layer it up
Dutch Dare : buttons
totally stampalious : favourite trio of colours
artistic inspirations : anything goes

I now it's a summery card for such a cold day here, but I want to have a bit of brightness . It has started to snow here, only very fine , but according to the forecast we are all having big snow in the UK tommorrow. This will please some and frighten others.

stay warm and happy crafting. janex

Geat image and a fab card. I bet the real bees aren't feeling so cheerful at the moment. Snowed here earlier this evening so didn't go dancing. Didn't want to go out and not be able to get back.
I don't know how she got away with it but the girl next door when I was a kid used to dress her ginger cat in dolls clothes and wheel it about in the dolls pram. Mind you - the cat was weird, it loved chip butties!

Hi Jane

Here at last after my Christmas/New Year break and losing my internet connection for a week!! It is taking quite some time to catch up with everyone again LOL!!!

I see you are in Penny Black mode at the moment .. .. you use and colour them beautifully!

Love the Bountiful in two colour ways you posted. How different they both look .. .. but equally stunning!!

I hope all is good with you.

Love Jules xx
