Day 2, Honeycomb

It's day 2 of the new May release from Uniko.
Today we are all honey sweet!
Here's my inspiration for you using the new Honeycomb stencil.

I didn't want to go down the traditional honey bee route so went with a more masculine treatment, 
playing with a technique I'd seen on YouTube by Jennifer McGuire here, using dark card and white pigment ink with a stencil.
The base panel was a rich blue piece of card and the dark blue ink DI, Chipped Sapphire, with a white pigment ink. My die cut sentiment cut from the same blue card and the rest of the sentiment from Pure Florals Cosmos was stamped on a white card circle in dark blue ink. A larger die cut circle of vellum softens the edges. The trimmed panel was placed on a white base card.


I din't use the Bee Happy stamp for this, just the stencil.

Check out the rest of the DT for more inspiration.

Thanks for suggesting this Carol! 2nd entry


  1. Great idea so beautifully executed!

  2. Fabulous dimension! Knew I should have bought this stencil as soon as I saw how you’d used it on your card on the DT blog.

  3. Love that you chose blue for the stencil, it looks fabukoud!

  4. I think your card is wonderful. It does have a more masculine feeling as the hexagons have a great geometric feel and the way you've used the colours is super. (I have to try this technique soon). Lovely work. Deborah xx

  5. Masculine marvelous in every way, as well as shadow sensational! Hope you'll 'buzz' this 'hexagon' delight over to Just Us Girls, where this week's theme is shadows!

  6. Has an industrial feel to it.
    Great to get another idea for
    using the stencil. Looks
    wonderful. thanks for

  10. Striking and super fun take with the stencil Julie. Love the outside the box colour combo you've used too. Fab idea.

  11. Great overlapping with the stencil. this would work really well for a masculine card too - don't kmow wht but it reminds me of tools and nuts and bolts! Maybe it's just me?! X
