Good morning, it's time already for our new theme at Allsorts challenge. Wendy is hosting this week and she chose the theme of "Summer Sunshine", meaning she wants to see yellow as the main color. I hope you'll decide to join us. We do have a prize this week coming from JMC Designs.

I thought the color yellow works well with a bee themed stamp, so that's what I used.
The image stamp I used is from Hero Arts, I purchased it directly from Hero Arts, but it appears to be out of stock at the moment. I did find it available at Michaels online if you're in the US. The stamp is called Antique Bee and Flowers. By the way, Michaels currenty has a 20% off sale (of everything full price) when you use Promo Code: 20MAKE4120 valid until June 18th and free US ground shipping on online orders of $59 and up.
The image was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Ink and colored with Copic markers. My stencil is actually a chicken wire stencil from TCW but also works as a honeycomb design. I used Mustard Stain Distress ink with a little bit of Wild Honey ink along the edges. The sentiment comes from the set Blooming Sentiments by Penny Black, heat embossed in white on black card stock using Versamark ink and white embossing powder. I decided to stamp a script border across the bottom portion (stamp is old from Whimsy Stamps), and then finished it off by adding a yellow button with jute twine. My card base is heavy weight cardstock from Michaels.

Thanks so much for visiting!! Hope you're having a good weekend. I need to get the grapevine I puchased planted this weekend, but my husband needs to build some sort of a trellis first. Looking forward to homegrown grapes already, although it'll probably be a while 😀
