Yellow & Gold!

Hi! There are a few sunshine-related challenges around at the moment, which makes me think of sitting in the garden surrounded by bright flowers and happy bees! So here's a card inspired by sunshine:



I watercoloured the images with inks, and then added some gold with a Wink of Stella brush pen, and added stickles to the wings of the bees. The shimmery gold from the Wink of Stella isn't that obvious in the photo, but it looks lovely when the light catches it :)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
