BEE Yourself Card by Mandy C




Square Card Blank
Watercolour Pencils 


·       Stamp all over the card blank with the dotty 7 Gypsies… it’s like punchinella but a stamp. Reminded me of honeycomb even though it’s not hexagon :-p ~ Use the Saffron Archival… beautiful honey coloured yellow.

·       Stamp the doll out onto white card/paper. Colour and cut her out. See how she fits on the card but don’t stick her down yet.

·       I then stamped the script from the 7 Gypsies A Bugs Life set onto the right hand corner, the flowers along the bottom and the moth/butterfly on the left corner.

·       Colour the leaves and berries with the ProMarkers. The rest I coloured with watercolours.

·       Stick the doll into place.

·       I’ve added some ‘stains’ around a couple of the edges.

·       Using the watercolour pencils, create a shadow around the doll.

·       I’ve used the words ‘bee yourself’ ~ it’s computer generated text.

·       Edge with the Amber Clay chalk ink.

·       Finally edge with black Archival ~ just on the edge.


  1. Such a fun and colorful card...
