Sweet as Honey Step by Step

Today I would like to share my process for creating a Project Life card step by step..

 I started by pulling out some scraps from my stash, my Fiskers hexagon punch and the "Sweet as Honey" stamp set by HoneyBeeStamps

My goal was to create a PL card and embellishment for the Project Life Card Swap facebook group I am in.  The theme was Scraps dive Bee edition.  So I pulled all of these yellow scraps from my scrap bin and started punching out hexagons. 

The wood pattern paper was perfect for my base card.  I lined up my chosen stamps on my MISTI ( by My Sweet Petunia )  This is a fun tool for stamping on multiple cards. 

I colored the adorable little bee with a yellow sharpie, white gel pen and black liner pen. 
I think they came out super cute. 

The blossoms are the perfect flowers for spring.  I love how delicate and pretty they are. 
I used the same pens to color the centers of the blossoms to make them pop.  These are really easy to fussy cut and attach to my card with 3D foam squares.

I am really pleased at how cute these cards came out. 
I am sure they will be well received in my swap group. 

Thanks for stopping by today! 

Distress Crayons vs. Gelatos - My thoughts

Hi friends, Today I am going to share with you my comparison of Distress Crayons vs. Faber-Castell Gelatos

 First off I paired them side by side by colors that I had of each.  The colors are pretty close.

I applied the colors side by side by rubbing them onto a pallet sheet.  The left side is the Distress crayons, the right side is the Gelatos. The Distress crayons are a bit more thick and creamy.  I feel like the intensity of color is just a bit more vibrant with the Distress crayons in the colors that I worked with.

Next I stamped the exact same image using the HoneyBeeStamps "Not too Shabby" stamp set
I applied the color using a watercolor technique.  Simply dipping my brush into water and picking up the color from my pallet sheet.  More water, darker color, less water lighter color.  Again the Left is the Distress crayons, the right is the Gelatos.

So in a side by side comparison. Can you tell the difference? 
I feel they are pretty similar in color and application.  I like the smaller tip and pen like size of the Distress crayons for direct coloring of an image, I like the variety of color choice found in the Gelatos.  I think both are a fun medium for coloring images. 

Tell me which you prefer and Why? 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Scrappin'
