Art Journey and Darkroom Door Blog Hop!

Hello Happy Friday to you all!

I am apart of a fun blog hop today, with Art Journey and Darkroom Door…how fun, this is day 5 and the last day of the blog hop, so if you haven’t had a chance to hop along and look at some amazing creations you can go to the master list HERE to join in on the fun!


All 23 members of the Darkroom Door and Art Journey design teams have joined together to bring you a 5 day creative extravaganza! Each artist will inspire you with a project using stamps from both of these fabulous companies..

You should have arrived from Dianne ten Hove’s blog, remember if you loose your way head back to the master list HERE..


I had the pleasure to create with the rubber stamp called Honey Bee, I was excited to receive this stamp and new straight away that I wanted to go with a layered look, lots of layers of pattern papers, most of them are scraps from my stash, turning this into a more free form creating, adding splashes of gold color shine, rub ons and sewing, keeping the main focus on the beautiful honey bee, that I stamped in plain black so that it would shine on the card :)

Here is a closer look of the card…


Now we have an amazing GIVEAWAY!!!!!  For you readers Darkroom Door and Art Journey will be giving away a few prize packs, with winners randomly chosen from ALL of the blog hop comments received by Sunday, June 29th. Lots of chances to win some goodies, just leave a comment on this post to enter!

It is time to leave my little blog now and head on over to Jeanette Blok’s blog

I really hope you find some time to hop along and if you have been following along I sure hope you have been totally amazed as I have..
