MFTWSC121 - Sweet as can Bee

Happy Hump Day!  It's time for a new MFT Wednesday Stamp Club challenge!   
I have the honor of playing along the MFT designers as I gear up for my MFT Guest Designer stint in May!  Can't wait to share all of the new MFT goodies during release week!  

Until then, I will share a little something I made for this week's sketch challenge with a little somethin' somethin' that was released this month.  It's the adorable Doodle Garden Sweet as Can Bee!

I stamped my this cute image onto X-Press It blending card in Momento tuxedo black ik and colored her with copics. I used some General's pastel chalk pencils to deepen the shading.   I added some silk microfine glitter to her wings and used a sunny yellow Viva Decor pearl pen to add a little dimension to the center of her flower.  I paired some PP from the Echo Park Dots and Stripes soda fountain 6x6 paper pad with some MFT smooth white, black licorice, and lemon drop CS.   I ran the lemon drop CS through the Big Shot in a Darice strip embossing folder.I used the MFT Die-Namics Pretty Posies die set to create the flower and used the wonky scallop border die for the border at the bottom.  

Here is a close up:
