Bees Wax



Started off by putting spare modelling paste through a TH hexagon stencil, top and bottom right. Went over this with yellow portfolio pastels and coloured the 'space' with orange pastel before melting beeswax onto it and stamping into it with a hexagon stamp.


This is the full #8 tag.


Added brown portfolio pastel over the raised bees wax. Stamped the Stampotique bee onto separate card, cut out and stuck them on the tag. Edged with gathered twig distress ink.


Then I decided it needed something else, so added renaissance and ruby treasure gold to bring out the textures.

PaperArtsy have a theme of wax.

Love it Sam! I like the combination of stencil and stamp hexagons and always love to see bees on projects. Smashing how the TG brings out the texture!
