While looking through some of my dies I came across one which I've had quite a while but in fact it has never been used - how bad is that?? I'd been playing around with Pixie Powders yet again and one of the pieces I'd done was a lovely yellow so I've combined this with an embossing folder, the neglected die and some stamps - I also used some smaller hexagon dies too. The background was embossed using a hexagon folder, cut to fit a card and then the edges were sponged with Wild Honey Distress ink. The hexagon panel was cut from kraft card; the wooden beehive was stamped, coloured using pencils and then cut out with scissors. I thought that I must have a bee stamp somewhere and sure enough after a search I came across a set of stamps which has bees in more than one size - I've used two sizes here. Of course having used items from various die and stamp sets I now have some tidying away to do but it was fun coming up with a way to use the neglected die. Details of everything used are below as usual.
