So this didn’t come out quite as pretty as I hoped – I felt that the base looked too dark. Maybe it would have been nicer on a yellow and white sponged base or even a green? I don’t know. I’ll try it again.
I was happy with my bees though. They were so tiny and pretty hard to paint, I felt a bit cross eyed afterwards. The honey comb structure was created using hexagons* from BornPrettyStore. (I’ve used them previously for this design where I tiled them over my nail.)
