Zzzzumming in the rain

Hi everyone. I hope you are all doing well. We have a musical challenge for you up at The Male Room today and for this challenge I have made a card featuring a cute bee in a shower of music. And of course it's not singing in the rain, it's zzzumming in the rain. :-)

I started this card by using a cloud stencil creating a cloudy sky. I used black ink first and then brushed a layer of "Stormy sky" distress oxide ink over the black skies.

I then proceded to the stamping of the images. I used a cute little bee from the "Bee happy" stamp set by Hello Bluebird stamps and I also gave him an umbrella from the "Puddle play" stamp set also by Hello Bluebird. I also used a few music notes from the "Critter Concert" stamp set by Lawn Fawn to create the "rain".

I colored all my images using copic markers in the following colors:
Bee: C9, C7, C5, YR04, Y19, Y15, BV60, B0000 and B000
Umbrella: Y19, Y15, Y13, G28, YG17, Y13, E29, C9

I then used the "Tumbled glass" distress oxside ink to brush on a blue sky around the images and over the music notes. The distress ink dulled down the color of the music notes making them look like they are far away or inside the rain fog. I then stamped a few crisp black notes on top to create depth.

I wrote the sentiment on the skies using a black pen and used the same pen to create a flying trail behind the bee.

At this point I used a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die to cut the card panel to size and glued it to a dark blue mat pushing the panel all the way to the bottom right corner of the mat. I then glued this to a white card base also to the bottom right corner.

For the finishing touches I used my wink of stella brush pen to the bottom of the clouds (doesn't show up on the photos unfortunately) and I also covered the umbrella and the bee wings in glittery Nuvo
drops in the color "White blizzard".

I hope you will join us in making musical projects the next couple of weeks.
