Home Sweet Hive...


"Home Sweet Hive" from Clear Dollar Stamps... I love it!  The design of this set is very fun.  It's classy and clean.  Here's a lookie-loo of what I've made with "Home Sweet Hive".  I don't usually talk about the card design but here I go...

I let Basic Grey's Wisteria designer papers get me started on my layout.  I popped out some of the flowers to give it dimension and dabbed beads in the flower centers with glitter.  To top it off I followed the petal outlines with crystal lacquer.  I just don't think the photo does it justice.  It's bright and colorful with depth.  I simply love it and I hope you do too.

On a different note, I hope you have a great weekend.  I don't have much planned.  How about you?

Smiles!!!

I like the way you used the crystal lacquer to outline the flowers. It looks like you soldered around them.
Very nice!
