I cheated a bit with my skep and cut the template out on my Cameo. I bought the shape from the Silhouette store. I brayered and sponged through the aperture to create the hive. I'm not great at colouring, so I particularly enjoyed Barbara's tips for that. I followed what Barbara did and was really pleased with the finished result. I then made it into a card for my Mum who was very pleased with it.
After I'd made Mum's card I was struggling with ideas for another design to send in for my homework. I was messing about with the stamps and decided to try and stamp my name with them. It started off as a bit of fun but I thought it was a bit different and decided to use it. After I'd done it, I thought I should have stamped the word MUM. It would have been easy to do and would make a gorgeous Mother's Day card. I couldn't face doing it again though, so Lynne it was. When it was shown on TV Barbara joked "This one was made by Frank".
