Clearly Besotted Teasers | Bee Afraid

Hello there and welcome to day two of the Clearly Besotted September 2022 Teasers. Release day is 1st September 2022. For my project today, I am using the new super cute Bee Afraid set. This set has lots of bees in different Halloween costumes - a bat, a ghost, a witch, a mummy etc. There is also a fun scene with a haunted/dressed up beehive!

I thought I would create tag today that could go on a sweet bag or given just as is. I started off by stamping the witch bee from the Clearly Besotted Bee Afraid Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then coloured her using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies section for reference). 

She was fussy cut out with scissors and set aside while I worked on the tag. I die cut two tags from white cardstock using the Clearly Besotted Tag Along Die Collection. I also die cut a circle die from masking paper and popped that on top to create a moon. 

Using Ink Blending Brushes, I blended on Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Wilted Violet, Villainous Potion and Black Soot. I then added Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz followed by Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress Spray Stain, removed the mask and set it aside to dry. 

On the other tag, I stamped a sentiment from the set in the middle with more Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then used the same inks to blend the tag. I also die cut the hole reinforcers from black cardstock and adhered them on top. 

I coloured the moon with Copic Markers and then adhered the tags back to back using tape runner adhesive. Witchy bee was added on top using thin foam tape. 

I stamped another sentiment from the set on to black cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the tag with more foam tape. 

To finish off, I added twine thought the top of that tag and tied in a bow and added white gel pen highlights to the bee.

I wonder if bees fly on broomsticks during Halloween? Would it make them fly quicker?!

  1. You’ve coloured them beeautifullly 😉. I love the softness to the background and despite it being purple, it’s still gorgeous!! 😂

  2. This is so cute Michelle - what a sweet bee witch (haha!). I love the gorgeous purple background with that fabulous moon and the sentiment on the back is so fun! Lovely!
