Hello everyone, I hope you've had a great week.
I'm a lucky girl as I received a package in the mail today with lots of very beautiful Hummingbird stamps from Designs by Ryn. I wanted to create something quickly so I could show you a couple of the new stamps, so I dug into my drawer of 'background stash' and found a Gelli plate print that I thought would go with a couple of Hummers.
I was lucky as it was a 'much needed' rainy day, perfect to get the house clean and then hang out in my craft room for a while :)
I created the background while in a workshop using Distress Paints (very fluid arcylic paints) and a Gelli plate. I stamped over top with dark purple Versafine ink and coloured with my Prisma pencils and highlighted with a white pen. The paper used in the class for the background has some texture which was picked up in the colouring.
Designs by Ryn is launching two new unmounted stamp sheets Hummingbirds 1 & Hummingbirds 2 tomorrow (August 21st) at her website. You can also check her Facebook page for information.
I used two birds from the Hummingbird 2 set. I also used her Leafy Branch which I think compliments them very well.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend,
