Living out in the country and having a lot of flowers in the garden we get a lot of bumble bees and wasps throughout the summer. I’m surprised that the bad weather this year hasn’t killed them off but they’re still swarming around my lavender and yellow poppies. Don’t you know red poppies are so last year?
I started with a base of Models Own Sun Kissed and then striped Black Magic over before using A England Morgan le Fey for the wings and a Color Club mystery blue for the sky. I used acrylic paint and a dotting tool for the eyes; I had wanted to use googly eyes but couldn’t find any small enough in with the kids’ craft things.
Of course I couldn’t resist trying to paint a certain Camaro – not quite as successful as the actual bumble bees but it had to be done.
Why not check out some of the other challengers’ manis?
