Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying the weekend. The weatherman says it's going up to 12 tomorrow with sunshine ! It's still too early for Hummingbirds, but I saw some crocus today peeking thru the little bit of snow that is still hanging around. It's exciting to see the first Spring flowers coming up !
I'm a little behind in 'card work' but have one more Hummingbird card that I created for Designs by Ryn that I thought I would share. This is Ryn's favourite in the group of Hummingbird cards :)
Stamps: Designs by Ryn - Leaves set CMF5 and Sitting Hummingbird CMB7
Stamps: Impression Obsession - Solid Cover a Card CC084
Spellbinder Die: Labels 23 S4-347
To create the background I started with the stamp kissing method with the large leaf from the set. I covered IO's Solid Cover a Card stamp with Memories Foxglove Pigment Ink. I stamp kissed the leaf into the ink and then stamped onto white cardstock using my Mega mount. Next I stamped over top with the leaf using Brilliance Gold, then Brilliance Pearlescent Crimson (a few times to change the density without re-inking) and finally Bamboo Leaves Mememto Dye ink. I sprayed the entire background with Gold Glimmer Mist (which is hard to see in the photo - it added a nice shimmer). I kept 'playing' until I was happy with the result.
The Hummingbird was embossed with black and then coloured with Tombows & water. I used "Peeled Paint" Distress Ink and the die as a mask to colour around the bird. A little ribbon and rhinestones are the final touches !
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day !
