"Sweet as Honey" - a Layout by Lynne

Hi there crafters! Going through my albums last week I realized I had yet to do a layout featuring one of my two youngest kitties....and she's almost a year old already! Honey and her sister Maggie were born in my hubby's workshop along with three siblings. Their young mamma couldn't take care of them so I bottle-fed them and was able to find homes for three of them. These two were both spoken for but the adoptions fell through. What can I say? They are now my babies.

Hubby named this little girl Honey so I decided to do my page with a honeycomb/bee theme and found some perfect pieces in my Gypsy Soul chipboard stash! I echoed the theme with stenciling on the page and stamping on the chipboard with honeycomb patterns.

The honeycomb patterned chipboard was painted peach then randomly stamped in orange and heat embossed with Ranger Antiquities in California Stucco. I then stamped randomly again with Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

The bees were simply heat embossed with Lindy's Golden Angel Wings.

The clear alphabets and drips were brushed with Butterscotch alcohol ink and I think they sort of look like they're made of honey! Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you a fabulous week!
