Bee Happy by Tracy Jackson

Good morning Bee Arty fans...

Today I have a card I wanted to share using this stunning stamp called Forever Always 


As with any cards I make I always pick out the paper first and base my colours around that.
So for inspiration I picked out a sheet from the Love and Grace paper collection


The following photos gives you an idea of the colouring sequence I tend to use. Although I would normally do the skin in any image first I was quite keen to start on the flowers.
I used copics as my basic background the prisma pencils to highlight.


All red and blue spaces filled - time for the yellow daises


And finally the skin and hair. 
Time to fussy cut


At this stage I inked all around the edges of the lady, cut all my paper layers, and because her face will take up the majority of the card face I felt it didn't need any embellishments
I also for "Bee Happy" in the Love and Grace collection to use for my words


Finally I placed all together.
I really enjoyed losing myself in this card while colouring her. Its the sort of image that calls for a lot of colouring but you will be rewarded with the end result

Until next time... Happy crafting
