For this card I have used some backing paper from Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady from Joanna Sheen. The subject matter close to my heart - thistles because I live in Scotland and have hundreds in my garden and bees as they are the guardians of the countryside and keepers of secrets.
The thistle is from Crafty Individuals and the bee from The StampMan. Both are stamped in black, embossed in black and sponged with toning inks. The verse is from a much longer poem called The Bee Boy's Song by Rudyard Kipling. Don't forget to tell the bees of any news you have!
Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment.
