Honey Bees and Flowers, Please - Gorjuss Girls Bee-Loved Stamp

For so work the honey bees, creatures that by a rule in nature, teach the 
act of order to a peopled kingdom.   William Shakespeare

Hey there,

Some of my favorite stamp images are Gorjuss Girl images from Santoro.  They can be a little hard to find, but I recently purchased this cling stamp on the internet and couldn't wait to color her cuteness and create a card.  She measures about 3" x 6" and fits nicely on a 4" by 8 1/2" tag card base (slimline) that will fit into an A-10 envelope.

The beautiful lacy tag die cuts I used for my background are from Tattered Lace.  I sponged the top panel with pink chalks to add some color and depth.  I dotted my sweet little bee's wings with a white gel pen and her skirt with yellow Nuvo Drops.  The flower on her waist has a little pink gem in the center.  I used the cutting and writing features in Cricut Design Studio to create the tag card base and sentiment.  The back layer looks a little orange in this photo, but it's actually metallic gold card stock. 

These adorable Gorjuss Girls come without faces and I find it fun to add a little personality by creating a face with my Copics.  I think they're super cute either way...I'm just used to coloring facial features so it comes natural to me.

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and "bee blessed" on this beautiful summer day.
