Fresco Fun With Paper Artsy

I've been having great fun with the new Paper Artsy stamps.  Their quality and designs are just superb and the limited edition paints are fabulous.

Here is one of the projects that I created using Jo Firth-Young stamps

To start I created a brayered background using Fresco Finish Paints (Which I adore!).  I used the limited edition Lin Brown paints in Banana and Tangerine Twist.

I stamped the hexagon using Tangerine Twist FF paint.  I also coloured a scrap of paper in the same colour and stamped and cut out the hexagons, stamping a greeting in one.

The bee hive was stamped and then coloured using Chocolate Pudding FF paint, adding extra layers to the edges. 

The large bee was stamped onto scrap paper and the small bees were stamped directly onto the card. They were all then coloured using Tangerine Twist FF which had a small amount of Chalk FF mixed in.  For the wings I added FF Metallic Glaze.  You can't really see this on the picture but it shows a lovely effect on the card.

I had great fun creating this....and can see it will be used alot!

Thanks for looking.
