The birds and the bees

Hi All,

Back with another card (surprised?!). Not much to say about this one , except it was my first time making my own flowers with the magic dies! I was a bit scared at first, but it was fun! I tried both the "swirly" ones - the purple rose (I did have to google how to make these ones though and watch the you tube video twice lol!), and the "nesties" ones - the patterned flowers which I then inked the edges of with a copic.

I used the sketch over on Sketch Saturday and I coloured in the pearls with Copics so they'd all match :)



Here's a closer one of birdy and the bees



I'm not completely happy with how the sentiment sits/looks, but can't put my finger on why.
Hope you like it, please leave me a comment if you visit, I always love hear what you have to say! :) xx
