Pile It On! Challenge - Time to Relax

This week's Pile It On! Challenge is all about taking:

'Time to Relax'
(We'd like to see chilled out images on your projects)

Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter
(I'll add the prize details when I find out what it is!)

I chose an adorable Penny Black stamp for my project called 'Beehave!'...although he doesn't look all that comfortable since the bee has interrupted his sunbathing session! I coloured him using watercolour pencils to match the We R Memory Keepers papers (from the 'Hippity Hoppity' and '72& Sunny' pads). I added a sentiment by Stampendous (love to use it with this image), and some stars cut using my Nesties. I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching with my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen.

Here are the challenges that I've Piled On!
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please visit the Pile It On! Challenge.
