A Sale and Tone on Tone Distress Oxide Stenciling with Honey Bee Stamps

 Hello Crafters! 

I've got a different kind of card for you today. You know I love me some one layer cards but sometimes you gotta add some actual dimension! This time I thought it would be super cute to have a few friends peek out. 
In fact you can see a whole lot of critter inspiration over on the Honey Bee Blog this entire week. 
Why? 


It's Party Animal Week! 


All of the Honey Bee Stamps animals are celebrating being on sale! 
This week all the animal stamps in the store are on sale for 15% including their dies. the discount is applied at checkout, no code needed. 
The sale runs through Saturday March 9th. 


I started by stamping and die cutting my sentiment and all of my critters. Usually I don't die cut my animals before I color them but I knew You wouldn't be able to see their entire bodies. In order to save ink and time I decided to lay out my card first to see where I needed to color. 


Once I had everything laid out the way I wanted I started coloring up my critters. I kept the colors pretty neutral except for the pop of pink from Pinky (ha. see what I did there? ) and the pop of blue for the background. 

Speaking of the background I created it by laying down a light layer of distress oxide. I used salty ocean but you can use whatever color strikes your fancy. 
After I laid down the base layer I laid my stencil over top and added another layer to create a very subtle pattern. Since I don't love busy patterns I use this technique a ton. 

You can see the entire card from start to finish in the video below 


I think Pinky the Pig really stands out on this card which I kind of love. Even though I won't be able to use an A2 sized envelope for this card I think the little guys peeking out from behind that adorable sentiment is perfect. 


If you'd like to take advantage of the sale you can see all the products here.  
Thank you guys so much for stopping by!
