There's No Place Like Comb Card by Samantha Mann for the To Bee or Not To Bee Blog Hop, ink blending, bee pun, cards, #lawnfawn #beepun #prettypinkposh #inkblending #oxideinks

I love how this card came out!
the purples of the Distress Oxide Inks are soooo sweet and subtle! I used Wilted Violet and Milled Lavendar! 
then I used a honeycomb stencil and some white embossing paste to add texture to the card!
the images are from the Pretty Pink Posh Bee Friends stamp set! they're so cute! I colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then fussy cut them out. but never fear! there are also coordinating dies, too!
