One of my favorite cute sets is Hero Arts Busy As A. Despite its odd name, the set is adorable and has some great images in it. I ordered the coordinating die set and went to work. This was the second card I made...the first was pretty trash. I'll explain below.
The watercolor used on these images came from two different sources. The bees are painted with StampinUp summer sun and more mustard inks that were squished into the lids of the old-style cases. The hive is painted with an Arteza brown real brush marker that was squished onto an acrylic block.
There's a lot of squishing going on.
Anyway, I added Wink of Stella to the wings and flower, and a bling on the flower creates a visual triangle of yellow.
My first attempt at this card involved painting a large scrap with the summer sun ink. I stamped the bees and die cut them out of the painted scrap. Wow, that was ugly. Didn't think about how the wings would be yellow, too, and just no.
What are your favorite "cute" sets?
