Beeswax Beehive

I was fascinated by this tutorial in the newest newsletter and knew I had some sequin waste somewhere in my stash. Oh but where? Searched high and low and could not find it anywhere. I was so determined to try this that I improvised by taking a piece of acetate and punching holes in it. I just punched a couple of rows and moved it down the card front as I applied the wax. Is it perfect? no. It's homemade. Something I think we lose track of when we make our cards. They don't have to be perfect...it is a homemade card like no other that someone will feel special to receive.

So this is my improvised HOMEMADE version of the Beeswax Beehive technique. It was great fun! The only stamps I used are the bee from A Stamp in the Hand and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. I used a computer printed photo of the beehive and colored it.

Thanks for looking and remember...it doesn't have to be perfect..it's homemade with love!
