My husband had found a jar of springs and I had the idea of using a spring for a Bee on a card.
Used 2 different Hero Arts sets. Used one HA stamp/die set for Sunflower & Bee. Used another HA stamp for sentiment. Card can bee used for Mother's Day or another occasion.
Paper pieced the Sunflower. Used glossy accents to attach spring to card but also pushed the spring thru cardstock layer and tied it down so it would bee more secure. Used stickles for sparkle.
Hero Arts: stamp/die - Garden Flowers Set - Sunflower, Beet,
stamp - Butterflies - sentiment
ink: Delicata Golden Glitz - on edges of sentiment tag, VersaFine Onyx Black
paper: cardstock - greens, white, yellows, Darice green vine
punch: Fiskars Hexagon - sentiment tag
recycle: spring - Century Spring Corp - attached to back of Bee
Tim Holtz: enamel accents: black - on Bee
stickles - crystal, gold, white, yellow <-- on Sunflower & Bee
