Robyn's Fetish Challenge #145: Have a Heart

This week, the challenge at the Robyn's Fetish challenge blog is sponsored by Robyn's Fetish!
The winner will receive their choice of any THREE images from the Robyn's Fetish Store!

The theme of the challenge this week is:
"Have a Heart": the only twist is that your creation must include THREE hearts!

I used "Bee Mine", which comes with it's own sentiment as well!

I wanted to take a second to share a little trick I learned for paper-piecing with dark or black papers.
It might be obvious to some, but to others it may be their "Ah-Hah Moment", so here ya go:

Print the image on yellow paper, then flip the image and print it on the BACK of the black/patterned paper. It makes it easier to see the image and cut out the pieces of his wings and body to piece into place!

And don't be afraid to print digis on colored paper... there's no reason to print on white paper, then color it all yellow, right?

The bee hive is an SVG file I found a long time ago... see THIS POST!

That's about it for this week!
See you all over at the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog!
