Trendy Twine has a challenge happening right now that looked cool, so I thought I’d try it. I fell in love with their latest twine color, Bumblebee, when it first started popping up here and there at the end of June. I actually marked my calendar for its opening day and ordered it as soon as I finished their blog hop that day.
The challenge is to use only black, white and yellow on your project and include some of their twine. It must also have a bee on it. I love this bee from Lettering Delights’ Steampunk collection so that’s what I used.
I had fun making him, too. He’s one of those Simple Shapes that only have two layers — one for drawing the design on it with a pen, and another for the cutting lines. I used my white Signo Uniball pen in my BossKut Gazelle to make the white designs. You don’t need a holder for the pen on the Gazelle; it just fits right in. I made a third layer with the shadow/blackout feature to make a yellow shadow. And I used my treasured Bumblebee Trendy Twine to make stems for my yellow Prima flowers.
Wouldn’t it be cool to put a jar of honey in that bag???
