Wild honey distress ink - stamped and painted on with a brush. front and back of card
Flicked water all over it - artistically of course and shaded.
Stamped and painted the queen bee, and did the same with her worker bees.
Dustings of golden pollen here and there and a gold crown (gold stickles)- shame it doesn't show up in the photos.

This will be going to Japan with a jar of Norfolk Honey and Honeycomb.
