My card today has been made for the current challenge over at Allsorts Challenge. This week they are looking for Wings On Things. The stamps used on this 6x6 card all come from Designs By Ryn. I started by making a background using distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon, then using Versafine Black Onyx I stamped the flowers and leaves. Next on a separate piece of card I stamped the Humming Bird, I then coloured both the flowers and bird using distress pens. I went over the bird with clear Wink Of Stella to give it a lovely sheen then fussy cut it out and popped it onto the card with glue gel. I then mounted onto some gold mirri card and then onto a green card blank. While in the USA in June last year Hubby and I were lucky enough to see a pair of these stunning tiny birds who were drinking from a feeder that a cafe owner had filled and popped into the flower bed outside of the cafe. Despite trying for sometime we failed at getting a decent photo of them, their wings move so fast they just look like a blur.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comment which are always appreciated.
