I picked up this stamp (on sale, of course) with the express intention of stamping it in this style. There are actually two stamps here, one is the 'sticks' at the bottom and the other is the flowers/weeds.
I tapped on ink from Adriondack stamp pads in multiple colors, sprayed with a 'mini-mister' and stamped, drying immediately with a heat gun. I re-misted and stamped twice more before re-inking and repeating. The branches were done the same way, using two tones of green ink. I made a smudge in the upper right so I covered it with a stamp of a bee and then repeated it in the lower left. The bees and the text were stamped with Archival black ink.
The bands that cross the image were made by scoring using the Scor-Pal. Then I inked them and all the edges of all the papers with "Old Paper" Distress Ink.
After adhering all the layers, I colored the bees with grey and gold watercolor markers and added Stickles to them (different color for the wings than the body).
