"Something Sweet" at Sweet Stampin'!

Hi Ladies~
Hope you are enjoying this lovely weather, how nice finally seeing the Sun Shinning.

Saturday means another Challenge over at Sweet Stampin'.
Our Sponsor this week are Iva Nova Chest.
I was really pleased to hear that the Theme for this week was ~"Something Sweet~".
A few weeks ago I bought a New Stamp Set from Chocolate Baroque Called "Honey Bee" and was dying to use it....So Something Sweet was a perfect theme to use this lovely stamp set.

I am slightly unhappy with my colouring. I decided to use my Tim Holtz Distress Markers to colour, but when I then tried to move the ink around with a water brush it did not work...I can only think the paper that I stamped on was not the right paper for the movement to happen. More practise needed I think!
Saying all that, I do love the stamp set and there are 6 large stamps to this sheet, as well as some small bee's, the bee hive and foxglove are especially nice.

I have used some Graphic 45 lemon coloured card stock for the base. I then used the honeycomb stamps all over the background. Finally I stamped, cut out and coloured the larges Sunflower.
All coloured with Distress Markers.

Fabulous card Debbie - love the design.
Thanks for popping by my blog today - The frame I used was around £15 from Hobbycraft (it's 12x12) but I bought it when they had a 20% discount promotion on - and I had gift vouchers :o)
I think Ikea have some on offer at the moment for £9 for 50cmx50cm and £3.50 for 23cmx23cm
