021820 CKC February Challenge #2

 Master Forger Julene says: One of the inclusions in the kit was bees. Let them inspire you in some way - think bees, hives, honey, recipes, etc. If you have a bee photo scrap it. Maybe you have a honey recipe you can scrap about. Has someone been stung by a bee?

 Oh, yes - I definitely have a bee sting story. 

I got a wee bit excited about this challenge & as soon as my kit was hunted & gathered I dove right in. Sometimes you get an inspiration download directly out of your brain, right? Well, I got most of it done before I realized that I hadn't photoed my kit yet! Oops, but you'll understand why when I show you the gorgeous paper I was slicing & dicing with abandon:

*And there are bees on the "bee" side, lol!*
I've had large hexagons on my mind for some time now & since they look like beehives the design began to take shape quickly. The bees on the b-side are actually printed in a hexagon pattern. This paper has lots of hidden bees & insect images that I wanted to showcase in the hexagons. I made a fussy-cutting pattern sheet with a large hexagon that I made myself plus punched shapes.

It's hard to photograph but the background has a pale pink tinge to it & is slightly distressed.


Had so much fun with this one - story, products & photo - a great trifecta.

Here's what we have coming up for the rest of this month:  
  • February 24th: Julene's showcase of one of the CKC community who's caught her eye this month.
  • February 27th: We'll be offering another installment in our Killing Kits Series to help you find ways to use up all of your kit. 

I hope you are inspired to create something that you will "bee" happy with!

We always love to see your work, so please share your kits and projects with us. You can use our Monthly Link-up page, post them in our Facebook Community, or share them on Instagram (we are @counterfeitkitchallenge or tag us using #counterfeitkitchallenge and #ckcfebruary2020).
