IB75 Patina and Honey

Hi folks!  Ah Thursday...almost the end of the week, and time for another Inspired By challenge!  Here is my creation for today's challenge:

And here is Laurel's prompt:

Oooh, this really pulls on my vintage-loving heart-strings!  I pulled out a wreath image from a Darcie's Heart and Home set that looked like the container behind the faucets and stamped it in Stazon on some watercolor paper.  I just bought a set of Arteza watercolor brush pens, so I used a couple of them to color it in.  I stamped the honey image from another Darcie set over top, in Sahara Sand, then die cut it out:

I embellished it with some golden pearls and a little fussy-cut bee whose wings are delicately colored with Wink of Stella...too bad you can't see it here!  My final addition was a couple of little banners at the bottom.  I used an assortment of various print papers from my little 6x6 stash, as well as some gold foil, and used the Try Stampin' On Tuesday sketch 411, which has the option of vintage--yippee!!

I hope you'll play along with our "patina" challenge this sure to check out the DT's will get a chuckle from Michele's!  You can see them all at the IB blog!

And here is my little busy bee; she has learned how to cut asparagus from the tiny little patch we have in our garden, and Grampy is teaching her how to snap off the ends!  She likes to pick it but she won't eat it!

Thanks for popping in...enjoy your day and be blessed!

You have blessed the socks off me today. Vintage all the way back to my childhood with the asparagus patch and and bees. My father was an apiarist and so was my grandfather. I sold honey from Grandpa's stand when we would go to visit. I would help my father slap our labels on the honey jars and stamp his business name on the labels. I wish I still had that stamp! Little did I know I'd be stamping in my old age! I hated asparagus as a child but I can't live without it now! LOVE your card!
