Bee and Butterfly

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Cathy here with my things that start with B.
I started out with a paper Mache ornament and  painted it with some art alchemy dark velvet color paint. As that was drying I took a die and made the crest and leaves out of Kraft cardstock. Then I stamped the bee from the bugz set  on the crest.  I thought it needed more so I stamped the mini crown from mini crowns set.  Edged the crest with some brown distress ink and set aside. Then I colored the leaves with some green distress ink. Set them aside. I did stamp gothic text  on the paper Mache in black ink but you can not see it.
Then you glue everything down. Last I edged the circle with a thin line of black paint.
 So I have a bonus card for you. I so forgot I had this one made for the things with a B challenge so you get a bonus idea from me.
It is a CAS card. Well to be truthful. It did not start out that way. I tried using Nuance Powers and painters tape. Didn't work. The tape tore the paper. Insert mad face here. Grrrr. So I just cut the bubble border  out. Added it to a black card front. Then I stamped the butterfly on the torn paper and water colored in. I did add some sparkle to the wings.  
Come take up the challenge of Things that start with B.
