A Bee ON my Bonnet!
Moira at Happy Daze has some wonderful mini top hats in stock (available in cream, black and white).
Mine's decorated a bit on the tame side (doh! I just used stamping with images from the shop to decorate mine- didnt read the brief properly about what we could use and am mad with myself for not adding my own stuff), but you should see the other hats on display over on the Happy Daze blog...they are lots of fun and really wild. I'll try another one in the near future and create a wacky one.
I used Big Bee and Medium and Tiny bee...and the Leaf and Hexagon, all by Stampotique. The sparkly bling is from a set of Parisian Anthology flowers. The paint used to colour the hat is by Claudine Hellmuth. I used Modern Red and Dab of Yellow...softened with some white thrown in for good measure. All available at Happy Daze here in the UK.
For the sticky-up wings I used that packing material which is like soft poly foam sheeting.
Anyway...hats off to the rest of the team who provided us with some true British eccentricity. Wonderful stuff. Please check them out here.
Oooops...almost forgot, made a matching necklace to go with it. Simple stamping, using A World All Her Own and Medium Bee. Again, available from Happy Daze.
*EDIT TO SAY* necklace is shown in the top photograph)
Thanks for looking x Have a great weekend .
