Hi all!  I wanted to make a card for this week's CAS- clean & simple challenge on splitcoast stampers.  The challenge this week was to find ways to use cut up sentiments.  I decided to try out my new Stampin' Up! stamp set 'Just Buzzin' By'. 

First, I stamped the three bee images and then colored them using my SU markers.  The wings were water colored using my water color bashful blue crayon and blender pen.  Sometimes I will water color part of an image if I want it to have a more suttle shade of color.

My sentiments were stamped and then punched using my modern label punch.  I punched out one side of my sentiment and then I had to take the sentiment, turn it around and place it back inside the punch and punch it again.  I needed to stamp the entire sentiment a few times in order to punch the words out this way.

For the word hi I used the other word sentiment in this same stamp set and using my black SU marker, I colored in the letter h and then the letter i and I stamped them together to form the word hi.  I know that was a bit tricky to do, but it works.

I added black dots using my SU black marker along the scallop edge of my daffodil delight card stock and white dots
