CGD Oh Honey!!!!

I have to admit, I'm quite partial to this bumble bee. I used a solid image stamp to stamp the bee on, then stamped the stamped image onto paper to get the reverse image. Then, I stamped the bee directly to the paper so I could position it exactly where I wanted it. I had to touch up the reversed image bee with a black pen (I used a micro and artist pen) to make him a sharp, black image. I then coloured it with prismacolours.

From the close up you can see that the bee on the left, the reversed image bee, has lines that are a little fatter but is still adorable, I think.

Enjoy your weekend!!!
