Hello ! Below is another card that I designed for Designs by Ryn . We see a lot of Hummingbirds flying & enjoying a meal in our flower gardens, but rarely do we see one that is sitting ! Hummingbirds are so amazing ! I'm getting anxious for spring and gardening !
I used Ryn's CMB7 - Sitting Hummingbird to create this card. My post on February 18th (Think Spring with Hummingbirds & Flowers) shows cards with one of her flying Hummingbird stamps.
If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that most of the time I like to create my own backgrounds so this is a different 'look'. I love trying out different techniques, but at times I feel I should use some of my designer papers. I have large stash of mini-pads and I don't 'allow' myself to buy anymore until I use up most of what I have here. So that 'rule' should save me some budget to use for new stamps :)
When I first started making cards, I was doing a lot of paper folding & embroidery on paper and always used border stickers. I have a life-time supply of folding paper, stickers & embroidery threads. Fortunately they don't take up too much space as a passion for rubber stamping has taken over ! Part of this hobby is collecting for the hobby !
I embossed the image with black on watercolour paper and coloured with Tombow markers & water. I used Spellbinders Nestabilities S4-133 & S4-131 to cut out the image & pink mat. The flower & leaves were created using Crealies Dies CL CS 11 & CL CF 17.
The papers I used for this card is from Basic Grey's 6x6 pad - 'Sweet Threads'. The flowers & leaves were die cut from the same paper with the exception of the bright pink flower that was from a piece of left-over background with Smooch Inks.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend !
