Hummingbirds


Here's my first card using the Hummingbirds stamps & dies from Stampendous.  I colored them using a mixture of watercolor pencils and water color crayons - blending with water, of course.  I added a touch of smooch ink in the centers of the flowers.  You can't tell in the picture, but I also added a thin coat of "Frosted Lace" stickles on the hummingbirds so they shimmer.

The sentiment was made using stamps from JustRite (Botanical Swirls Labels & Friends Antique Labels One) and a die from Spellbinders (Botanical Swirls & Accents).  It was made from glossy white cardstock colored with alcohol inks and then heat embossed in white.

The hummingbirds, a couple of flowers, and the sentiment are all added with foam tape for added dimension.
