What's The Buzz?

This week at Paper Smooches Sparks is  Designer Drafts challenge. The inspirational sketch is this: 

This is  my card version as inspired by this sketch. 

As I've mentioned in my previous blogs, I only own 2 PS Stamps so I work around it to join PS challenges. I think I've over used my Cyber Cafe but it won't be long that I get to add more PS products to it. It's just a matter of choice which I am still having difficulty choosing which stamps I want. For this card I decided to go to their free digi stamps and used the bee. Who wouldn't love this cute bee? I flipped the bee to face the other way. I printed it but since my ink is not a high quality one, I outlined it using Copic multi-liner 0.5. I colored the bee with Copic markers as well. Fuzzy cut it. 

I used several stamps in the  Cyber Cafe set. 

The clear cup was stamped on a patterned paper. Since there is an area wherein it is impossible to fuzzy cut because it is an outline, I decided to stamp it on the patterned paper where I will attach the cup. I was just careful not to lose that small piece by the handle. 

Next one is the steam stamp which I used as the bee antennas.     I marked with a pencil the spot where I want the antennas to be. Masked the stamp to separate the steams & to angle the other one. I also use  the end of the longer steam to extend the length of the shorter steam.  


The wi-fi signal stamp served as the stinger, embossed with glitter embossing powder. I angled it in different ways and used mostly the small dots vs. the bold dots.
The sentiment is a three lined sentiment which I masked again to create this one-lined sentiment. 

Thanks for viewing my creation. Have a  nice day!
