Prepared To Be Wowed with DreamWeavers

Dreamweaver is having a monthly challenge of Pinterest inspired inspirations.  I found this amazing tattoo with flowers and bees the other week and thought this would be perfect for my inpiration.

Just say it...wow right?  You're actually saying...how the heck does she get all that stuff one small card!
I always have fun making my cards...even under extreme pressure of deadlines.  This card knocked even my socks off...let me give you some of the details.

For this project I used DreamWeavers hexagon stencil and gloss white paste...you want the details or what?  Okay then...settle down... I applied the stencil and paste to the Core'dinations "Shattered" cardstock.  The next step was to sprinkle the wet paste with Stampendous! Micro crystal glitter...I love glitter..yum yum...I set it aside to dry.  After it dried (okay I sped up the process with the good ol' heat tool), I airbrushed it with a little Copic Y19 and YR24.  I airbrushed the MayArts ribbon while I had the stencil out.  Next layer, layer, layer...well you get the idea if your looking at the photo....LOOK at the photo already...okay ready for the next stuff....focus now... I wrapped the edge with the ribbon giving a little twist and turn and a glue dot every now and then.  I Stamped the sentiment on the pink paper and layered as shown.  I colored up a bundle of bees, cut and glittered the wings.  As you can see they are popped all over the card....MWAH!  Don't you just love it?

...before you run off if you are looking for links to the supplies used they are below.
