Bee With Heart Bundle (boy) by Conie Fong

Hi friends, and welcome to my post today.  My design team card showcases one of the sweet little bees in Conie Fong's Bee With Heart Bundle.   This bundle comes with a boy bee and a girl bee, a flower and two sentiments.  I chose the sweet little boy bee.  The bundle is available in both JPG and PNG formats.


I made two cards some time ago using these bees but I had coloured them using black and yellow.  This time, I went with brown and yellow.  I used Copic markers to colour this cute image, and applied clear Wink of Stella to his wings.

Be sure to check out Conie Fong's Facebook group called Conie Fong Art & Design Group where you will find some wonderful inspiration by the other design team members, guest design team members and other crafters.

Thank you for visiting.  Have a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx

Frog YouTube Video by Conie Fong

 Hi friends!  Conie Fong has some wonderful YouTube videos which teach you how to draw, step by step, some simple images.   How awesome is that?  

This particular video by Conie shows you how to draw an adorable little frog sitting on a lily pad.  Conie converted this super cute image into a digital image so that the design team members can colour it.  This way you can see how truly sweet this little fellow is.  Here is my DT slimline card:  


As always, I coloured the image with my Copic markers.  I found a free black and white clipart image of a lily pad, printed it out in three different sizes.  Then, I fussy cut four of them, and coloured them with Copic markers.

Conie has a Facebook group called Draw with Conie.  You can submit your colourings of these simple images in this group.

That's all from me today.  Thank you for visiting, and I hope to see you all soon again.  Hugs, Lori xx
