Crafty Secrets - What's the Buzz?

I'm on a roll with another item for the Crafty Secrets Linky Party on the blog!! Having coloured my last Crafty Secrets stamp with watercolour pencils I wanted to have a go with my Spectrum Noir pens this time.

I used a stamp from the Bug's Life stamp set which I stamped using Memento ink on to white card already die-cut in a hexagonal shape, coloured with my pens and then distressed the edges using Distress inks.

After that I lost my way a bit and after lots of playing around with patterned papers diecut in to hexagons I finally decided on the final layout although I'm still not sure about it!!


I used sequin waste and distress ink to add a bit of texture around the edges.

This is adorable! I like the way you stitched the perimeter of your card, and the hexagon stamping adds so much! Your colored bugs are as cute as, well....a bug! Thanks for playing along in the Crafty Secrets August Linky Party!
