Bee-Lated Black and Yellow

I’m somewhat obsessed with the background stamp from the April My Monthly Hero Kit. The matching layered stencil makes it so much fun and easy to color. Best of all, I can get two cards out of one background. Colored with GKD inks: Wild Dandelion, Prickly Pear, Jelly Bean Green and Fresh Asparagus.  After cutting an A-2 panel, I had this piece left. I added black mat. Since I needed a belated birthday card, I used the sentiment from Many Birthdays by Spellbinders. Even though the background has bees, I wanted a larger bee for an accent piece. I colored a bee from the January 2021 My Monthly Hero kit and die cut extras to give it some dimension. I’ve been away from posting and entering challenges for several months. Thanks to Stamp Buddy Johanna, I discovered that Black and Yellow was the combo for the current challenge at Color Hues and thought this would be a good way to jump back in.
