A Little Bit 'O Honey...

Happy Mother's Day Everyone!!!  Oh, I sure hope you had an awesome day today!  I had a fantastic one myself.  We started the day with brunch at Brio with my parents and then came back to our house for a bit.  Then hubby and son went to the hobby store and left me alone in my craft room!!!!!!!!!!  Now that's a gift :-)  I was able to get some how-to videos done and they will be up on the Tutorials page of my blog shortly.  I wasn't expecting to get to them until next week.  I did one showing how I watercolor and the other shows how I add the deep shadows at the end.  I hope you enjoy them.  Be sure to check for them later tonight or tomorrow.

I also added three videos last week that you can watch right away.  They are:  Masking, Skin with Copics, and Brown Hair with Copics.  I know there are many of these out on YouTube (mine are too by the way - search under 'scrapgirlangie'), but I just thought I'd give you my style of things.  Look at them....don't look at them....just know that they're there if you want.

So, on to today's card.  I made this card when I completed the videos and I used the image that I colored for them.  I hope you like it...

Honey Tilda
This sweet little honey bee is Honey Tilda and she is sitting on #541 Honey Jar.  You can get them both at Magnolia-licious.  It's the only place that I shop for all of my Maggies.  Diana has the best prices around and you get your orders super fast.

The fantabulous dp's are from PinkPaislee's Queen Bee collection...how fitting.  I used SU cs per usual.  The flowers weren't labeled and I can't remember where I got them.  The ribbon is your basic craft ribbon.

I applied diamond Stickles to Tilda's wings and the tips of the flowers and leaves.  The leaves, by the way, were cut with a MS punch.  I then distressed them with Ranger Walnut Stain and shaped them.  I cut the photo corners with a Cuttlebug Vintage die.  The sweet little bee charm is from WOJ.

Per usual, I colored the images using Copic markers and watercolor with distress inks.  Here's the details:

Copics:  E0000, 00, 02, 41, 43, 44, RV21

Ranger Distress Inks:  Walnut Stain, Forest Moss, Scattered Straw, Old Paper, Wild Honey

Oh yeah, I almost forgot....here's a little slideshow of my newly organized craft room.  I still need to hang some Copic organizers and a bulletin board.  I also need new chairs.  But it's sooooooooo much more organized than it was before.  I love all of the little 1" and 2" drawers for my stamps, tools and embellies.  I love them so much that I'm going to order four more of the short drawer stands.

That's it for today!  Thank you so much for joining me.  I hope you get a chance to check out my tutorials.  Look for the newest two either tonight or tomorrow (they take a while to upload).

Try to find some time to color!
