Less is More Challenge March 22: 3

Today's challenge on the Less is More blog is to use three of something on my card and then to comment on three other postings for this challenge.  Here's my card:
Honey Comb Memory Box stencil No. 88521
3 bees stamped individually using an Anita's stamp from Sugarloaf Inc. 2002
3 dots stamped individually using a small solid dot stamp, source unknown
Wild Honey Distress Ink for the Honey Comb
Black Hero Arts Ink for the other stamping
Watercolored the bees using Mustard Seed Distress Ink and a waterbrush
Bees and dots on the honey comb were accented with a Clear Wink of Stella Pen


also stamped and watercolored the bee on the envelope and
added a small honeycomb stamp from Stampers Anonymous
close-ups of the bees to see the glitter from the Wink of Stella better

Just beautiful Anne! I love the warm looking honeycomb and the bees look almost real - although they're certainly more glamorous than the bees around here!

I'm not one for being so up and close with bees but your background is stunning and certainly fits with the little flying things! x

I must apologise for my lack of comments over the past few weeks whilst I was on holiday in Australia, but hopefully things should be back to normal now!
This is a superb card!
Thanks so much
