Be Mine



Bee Mine...(be mine...get it?)

An early Valentine card idea.




Big Bee and Kisses from the Jo Capper-Sandon range at Stampotique, also available from Happy Daze here in the UK and Art Journey in the Netherlands. Inks used are the new range from Jenni Bowlin, also from Moira at Happy Daze and are fast becoming a favourite of mine.

ps...edit to say...the Kisses stamp is shown as stitches.

Luscious - so much nicer that all the red hearts slushy stuff LOL

Your "B" is a very clever idea Jo. I think I could cope with producing one of those instead of the yukky slushy cards which I hate lol.

Wonderful card! I love the colours and textures, and, of course, the pun.
I was really hoping not to love the Jenny Bowlin colours - I have sooo many inks already (a weakness of mine).

A lovely use of colours, so soft and delicate - definitely not slushy.

I love this "Bee Mine" card Jo. The way you did the inks it looks so three dimensional, and that faux stitching is simply awesome! That stitching is all ink pen doodling right? It looks amazing! I love these ink colors myself, the soft pinkish, soft coralish color and the grayish color, are all wonderful together. I'm going to have to get these colors now. Love your work!! Happy New Year to ya.

I do love the soft colors. I haven't tried the JB line of inks, but the beauty of this is tempting me. Lovely work!!

Shar said...

Loving your bee in pinks! Awesome card!

Oh no! I avoided taking a close look at this range of inks because I have loads of others but these colours are fabulous and I love the depth you've created with them. True artistry! Your bee is pretty fab too.
