Bee-utiful You!

I picked up a Heidi Swapp stencil the other day that is meant to be paired with some color mists, but I used it to trace some hexagons.
I created a bee hive on a card and this is what it looks like

I wanted them to have that hand drawn look, so I pulled out a Copic pen to trace the hexagons and then I added color with my Copic markers.  I wanted one of the hexagons to stand out so I used atyou Spica glitter pens and some dimensional adhesive (for a 3D look).  And of course I had to add a bee, thanks to some SRM Stickers.


Here's a close-up of the the extra special hexagon. 

I used my black Memento marker (Tsukineko) to create the "bee-utiful" using a Scenic Route clear stamp that was spelled the correct way. 
The "You" is from a Lawn Fawn clear stamp

If you look closely at the letters, you might see some sparkle.  I traced over the letters with a glitter pen.

I put a lot of work into this card, but I would do it again in a heartbeat because I'm very happy with how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by!
