Making honey ...

I was inspired by this hexagonal chipboard piece, its a 5.5``x 5.5`` pattern (PAT-274) and it shouted out to me : Honeycomb ! The dimension that the chipboard gave was perfect for this project, which is a Birthday card for a bee loving friend :

The chipboard is fairly sturdy but very easy to cut into the desired shape to fit this 5``x 7`` card.

Each hexagon was painted individually with gold acrylic paint and a large dollop of Crystal Effects added. The end result is amazing, its gold and wet looking, just like real honey :) Look at the comb ... its just perfect.
The stamp set I used for the bees, crown and sentiment is an itty bitty stamp by Unity called All Hail the Birthday Queen. The bees wings are stamped and embossed on velum card stock.

This project was very absorbing and enjoyable to do, I hope you like it and leave a comment.

Have a fun day. Nikki x
