Counterfeit Kit Forgery on the Fourth

It is the fourth of the month... which means a Forgery on the Fourth on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge.
This month I was inspired by the bees in the selected kit, the Tres Jolie kit from November based around the Prima Darcelle range, so I decided I 
 wanted to create a Valentine tag with a "Bee" pun using the dark blue and mulberry colours from the kit.
 Here are the simple step by steps on how I created this cute Valentine tag.
1. Use Stazeon black ink and stamp a bee stamp on to a small bag. I am using a Colour Blast stamp.
As I decided that I wanted to use the bees as an embellishment in a layout later in the month, I decided to stamp a few extra bees. I then used yellow water colour paint to colour in tge bees stripes.
After they were dry I fussy cut them out.

Next up, the tag. 
Using another Colour Blast stamp I stamped the words "Together Forever" with the bee image above the words so that it reads "Bee Together Forever" on to the tag.
 Next using water colour paint give the bee some yellow stripes.
Then using a very wet water brush apply dark blue water paint around the bee and over the rest of the tag.
Spray the tag with a good soaking of water and add small amounts of mulberry coloured water paint. The waterpaint will spread with the help of the soaked tag/papper. 

Let me know what you think.
