From the Sweet as Honey paper collection, trim a 8 3/4" x 6 1/2" mat from a yellow patterned paper. From the Words to Live By Journal Pages, locate the page with the yellow daisy as shown. Trim off side where punched holes appear. Ink all edges of each of the pages using Ranger Archival Ink - Coffee. Using a strong adhesive, attach matting panels to canvas as shown.
Locate honey comb with buzzing bees and coneflowers rectangle shaped image panel in Sweet as Honey Paper Collection - it will be located on page with smaller image panels, as well as small polka dotted square card panel. Ink all edges of the rectangle panel again with Ranger Archival Ink - Coffee and set aside. Die cut a rectangle honey comb panel from the polka dotted decorative paper, trim around all edges, ink all edges using Ranger Archival Ink - Monarch Orange, and then cut in half. Adhere one half to top corner of rectangle card panel and one to opposite bottom corner as shown. Die cut the inner portion of the Intricate Swirls Frame Die from white card stock using your die cutting machine. Adhere decorative frame over card panel. Attach panel to canvas as shown using dimensional foam tape.
Stamp two inkings of each of the largest coneflowers in the Blossoming Coneflowers, Backyard Blossoms and Garden's Edge Coneflowers Cling Stamp Sets (three flowers in total) onto white card stock using Ranger Archival Ink - Coffee. Color each of the coneflower images using Ranger Archival Inks - Buttercup, Coffee and Monarch Orange. For full instructions on how to color the coneflowers, please see video link above. Die cut all stamped images using coordinating dies. To shape the coneflower, snip into the petals following the stamped lines and then shape using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Shape all coneflowers. Snip off the blossom on the second set of coneflowers. Adhere three full image coneflowers to canvas as shown, creating a floral bouquet. Now adhere the snipped coneflower heads overtop the coordinating full image so that you have super dimensional double blossoms.
Stamp Honey Bee Maiden, crown, and worker bee images using VersaFine Black Ink onto white card stock. Color using blendable pencils and gamasol solution. Die cut using coordinating dies. Adhere bee maiden to canvas using dimensional pop dots. Adhere crown to bee maiden using a pop dot as well. Shape worker bees slightly and adhere to canvas as shown.
Ink a few small octagon die cut bits from your honey comb panel die cut using Ranger Archival Ink - Leaf Green and then adhere in random patterns around honey bee maiden and along top and bottom of raised image panel.
Using a dries clear adhesive, glitter wings on bees with Blue Rain Transparent Glitter, coneflowers using Lion's Mane Transparent Glitter and large preprinted daisy image on side of canvas with Crystal Transparent Glitter. Again using a dries clear adhesive, adhere Prills to tops of coneflowers as shown.
