Used all Lawn Fawn stamps on this Mini 3" square card. Used several different inks. Tried a new technique, Reverse Stamping, I saw on Internet but not recalling site. You make a block using foam and wrap it in Saran Wrap. You ink the stamp and stamp onto the Saran Wrap. Then  you stamp using the foam stamped image to stamp the reverse image onto your creation. Not the best first attempt but I liked it nonetheless. I added gems to the centers of the flowers and stickles to the Bee body & wings. Decided to use Enamel accents black on the Bee's antenna. Was ok when I did the first Bee but made a mistake on the reverse stamped Bee. To cover up my mistake I used a black puffy heart embellishment. 

























Supplies List 


embellishment: Pink Paislee black puffy heart
Enamel accents: black - Bee's antennas
gems: tiny purple
ink:  ColorBox Deep Grape, Memento - Bamboo Leaves, Cottage Ivy, VersaFine Onyx Black
paper:  cardstock - white
stamp:  Lawn Fawn - Bee Mine - Bees, flowers, sentiment, Critters of the Savanna - grass
stickles: Diamond - Bee's wings, Gold - Bee's body
