The Queen Bee

Hi Everyone,
Jess here today with a bee-utiful tag to share.

 I am in love with the new Alphabet Stencils that will be coming to the store! They look like old fashioned stencils, but don't come with the huge price tag.
Start by embossing your chosen letter using the new 3d embossing folders from Sizzix.  To get the impression really crisp it is recommended to spritz your substrate(in this case chipboard) with water.  Once it's run through you can heat dry it or let it air dry.  Press in a book to get it flat  if it curls.
Cover the stencil with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink using a blending tool.  Using your finger add Distress Oxide in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  Grab your Distress Crayon in Tarnished Brass to highlight the high points of the embossed areas.  Vintage paper grounds the stencil and makes it pop.
Make your background paper and cover one of the giant Tag Super X.  This tag was a bit larger than I wanted for this project, so I cut a couple inches off the bottom.
Emboss your Bee with Oil Rubbed Bronze Embossing Powder from Emerald Creek.  Rub the bee in Distress Oxide Ink in Black Soot and spritz with water.  Set aside to dry.  
Play with the placement of the Honeycomb.  Once you are happy emboss the honeycomb using Charred Gold Embossing powder from Emerald Creek.  Add the alphabet dice just below the stencil.  

Cut out a circle to use as your reinforcer. Emboss metal tape using a 3d embossing folder and color the tape using alcohol inks.  

Happy Crafting,
