Hello everyone I hope you are doing well.
I love this time of year, the colours are gorgeous, the air is fresh and it's much cooler. But for sure 'time flies' and we should enjoy each moment.
I have a fall card to show today for Designs by Ryn, again using her beautiful Hummingbirds. This one took a long time as it changed constantly and at one point it was going into the recycle box. However I decided to keep it as I kept 'messing around' with the background and birds.
The background started with Raspberry and Coral Distress inks using water on an Acrylic Sheet. Next I stamped using Maple Leaf, but it's a bit lost into the background. I stamped Leafy Branch in the background but it's also hidden under white paint (using a stencil). But that is what's great with Acrylics and mixed media, you can build up the layers and just have a peek of something else underneath. .
I won't put you to sleep with the description of all the changes. I ended up stamping the birds on water colour paper, colouring with Tombow markers, a little Distress paints, fancy cut and glued to the background. I also added a little clear Wink of Stella on the birds.
Designs by Ryn Hummingbird stamps: Hummingbird 2 unmounted set or you can also buy them mounted individually Boot Racket-tail Hummingbird and Perching Hummingbird .
The leaf die cuts are from Impression Obsession and coloured with Glimmer paint. The sentiment was a free stamp received while in the Netherlands stamp event from Art Journey.
Thanks for stopping in at my blog and have a great day,
