"B" Mine - for Tag Tuesday

 
Hello!  Finally checking in with my Tag Tuesday entry - this week, we are challenged to use a monogram on our tag.  My last name is Beck, so I decided to use a "B".... but not for my name!  This is a little "Bee Mine" Valentine tag, using the Sweet Bee stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms.  I made the tag background using various shades of Distress Ink smooshed onto my mat pad.  I stamped the pussy willow and bee image in black, then colored it with Copics and a white gel pen to fill in the fluffy willows and bees' wings.  I stamped the "Queen B" image, cut it out, and colored it with a gold gel pen and some red Stickles for the jewels.  The little popped-up bee is cut from a border from K and Company - so cute!  You can stop on by Kard Krazy for some beautiful entries... so fun to blurf around and see everyone's creations.  AND... speaking of blurfing, be sure to join me and the entire Gingersnap Creations design team this Saturday, February 15th... we'll be having a Valentine blog hop, with a fabulous Valentine Giveaway Package for one lucky winner!  You won't want to miss it! ;)  (P.S..... There's a peek of the prize package on the GC blog right now.)
