Bee You - TSP - Color Challenge No 7

There is a color challenge this week over on The Sailing Pineapple blog and here is my first design team submission :) The colors in the challenge are so fresh, it brightened my day to make this postcard, using the free bee digital image from the week 5 challenge. I love the zentangle look of this bee.
The background is done in distress inks, then I used a stencil to spritz water onto it to remove a little of the color - you can lightly see the flowery pattern in the background. I sponged the edges and added some crackle glaze. The bee is colored with a combination of gelatos and ink, and detail added with pencil and white acrylic. Because the bee was cut out and the wings are free, I decided not to cut out the antennae. Instead I traced them and then drew them in. The sentiment and sequins add a little more fun detail.
