Just BEE-cause

Welcome back for another Skipping Stones Design Challenge! I choose to work with Whispering Wings


I cut multiple hexagons out to create the beehive effect. A few of them are mounted on foam adhesive.  

I colored the bee in with copics and gave him a bit of glitzy glitter on his wings. There was no way I wanted to cut out the antenna or legs, so I cut thin strips of black cardstock and adhered them on the back of the bee.

OUT FOR PUBLICATION

And here is the inspiration piece that we are working with this week. I love these colors, but I had the hardest time working with them. 

Ready to check out what the Skipping Stones Design Team has created this week?
