I stamped the seated bear in new Picked Raspberry Distress Ink on pink cardstock and detail-cut the image. Next I used the same ink on the honeycomb background stamp on pink cardstock for the background. I angled my octagon die cuts the same direction as the background shapes. I also added a little black glaze pen to his nose.
Since he looks like he might have just had a run-in with those two bumble bees, I thought the sentiment was perfect ... sometimes life hands you bee stings and you do just have to grin & bear it. The layout is this week's Sketch Frenzy Friday.
