Bee Balm

I felt like the Bumble Beezle needed something, she looked incomplete.  Or as Debbi would say "unresolved."  She needed a little oomph.  Some addition that would build her narrative and give her context.  That idea took root and bloomed. 



The grass tuft, stem, and flower center are made from polymer clay, the petals from a silk flower. I inked the petals up a bit.
