Quarantine Quickie #13 & #14: Busy Bees / River Deep, Mountain High

I am thoroughly enjoying building up my quarantine quickie tag journal using the prompts from Mike Deakin at Mission Inspiration. When I finished tag #14 I had caught up with the prompts at the time.  Of course now I am behind again, but I don't mind.
I used a paper towel mop up sheet for the background on the first tag.  Add the top layer to a #8 manilla tag, seal, dry and trim the excess.
Stamp the bee which comes with the Agapanthus stamp set from Clarity (designed by the late Jayne Nestorenko) to create a heart pattern.  Use Onyx Black Versafine ink.
Add the New Design Club #93 (Lady's Mantle) stamp along the bottom twice in the same manner.
Add a further bee onto the flowers.
Use a white gel pen to add colour to the flower heads.  Colour in the bees using yellow and orange Derwent Inktense pencils, blended out with a water colour brush pen.
Add white highlights to the bees' wings.
Stamp and colour an additional bee at the top of the tag.
To finish, hand write the prompt within the bee heart using a black micron pen.
For the next tag, I wanted to use my Faber-Castell big brush markers to add colour, so sealed a #8 manilla tag with matte medium to create a non-porous surface.  Lay the Mountains & Hills inner mask over the top of the tag and add Sky Blue and Ultramarine pens over the top. Blend out with a finger.
Cover up the sky with the other part of the mask and add Purple Violet and Crimson below, blending out in the same way.  Emphasize the join with a thin line of Purple Violet. 
Move the mask down and along and repeat the previous step.
Add the trees from the Cabin in the Woods stamp set in Black Soot archival ink.
Draw in and colour the river in Ultramarine and Cobalt Blue.  Add Chrome Oxide Green either side and blend with a finger.
Add the doe from the Woodland Animals set and the teeny weenie hawk from the Stag outline set in Black Soot archival ink.
Add further stamping in Library Green archival ink using the teeny weenie grass stamp from the Grove Trees outline stamp set.
To finish, hand write the prompt using a black micron pen.
Stay safe everyone.
