Honey Bee Stamps - Seasonal Sweeties

Hi everyone!  It's Christine here for Butterfly Reflections Ink and I have a new card and video tutorial to share with you today.  I'm really excited to share today's project.  It uses a brand new release from Honey Bee Stamps.  I was blown away with Honey Bee Stamp's most recent release and I bought almost the entirety of it from Vanessa's shop.  Here's today's video:

And here are some pictures of my card:

To create today's card, I first created the background.  To do that, I inked a piece of Canson XL Watercolor Paper (cut slightly smaller than an A2 sized card base) with Wild Honey Distress Oxide InkWornLipstick Distress Oxide Ink, and Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink.  I also spritzed some black ink onto the panel for an extra touch.  Next, I used the Fall Showers Stencil from Honey Bee Stamps and applied some Gold Glitter Paste to the stencil, which resulted in the beautiful gold leafs you see on the panel.  Next, I stamped the Seasonal Sweeties Stamp Set from Honey Bee Stamps onto some Canson XL Watercolor paper and then painted the image with my Zig Markers and my Detailer Water Brush.  I used the following Zig Markers:
Girl's Hair: Dark Brown, Brown
Girl's Coat: Deep Red, Pale Rose, Peacock Blue for buttons
Girl's Scarf: Peacock Blue
Girl's boots: Brown, Light Brown
Girl's Skin: Flesh Color, Blush, Sugared Almond Pink
Cat fur: Brown, Light Brown
Cat ears and cheeks: Light Pink

I then cut the image out using the Coordinating Forest Friends Honey Cut Dies and then adhered it to my distressed panel with foam tape.  Next, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink onto some black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then cut it out and adhered it with foam tape. I then adhered the entire panel to a standard A2 sized card base. For a finishing touch, I added some Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops What do you think?

Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!
