Hummer Paradise


I love to sit and watch the hummingbirds come on the deck to feed.  They are so amazing.  We have several feeders plus hanging flower baskets and it is so fun to see them buzz from one place to another.  When I saw this Heartfelt Creations stamp set, I knew I had to have it; the name of the set is "Hummer Paradise PreCut Set".    This is another stamp set you can order from Joan's Gardens.

The image was stamped and colored with colored pencils and OMS.  After I cut it out, it was sponged around the edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I used a new tool -- it is the Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool.  What a great job this does.  I love it because it has a handle to hold on to.  These products are also available from Joan's Gardens.

The image was attached to black card stock and I used scissors to cut a black mat around it to help make the design stand out more.  The designer paper is from the Basic Grey "Max & Whiskers" paper pad.  A piece of ivory card stock was embossed using my ScorBuddy and the ScorBug embosser.  You just run this little tool along the line and it gives you these little raised dots.  Lots of fun to use.  This piece was also sponged with the Tea Dye Distress ink and matted on black cs.  Black pearls were added.

The greeting is from the Heartfelt Creations "Daisy Patch Swirls PreCut Set".  It was cut out with a Spellbinder  Fancy Tags die and sponged then attached with dimensinals. 

It a gorgeous day out so think I will go out and plant some tulip bulbs before the weather gets cold. 

As always, thanks for stopping by.

The coloring is just so pretty on this card with the design and the papers. I have one of those little Scor-Buddy items and haven't used it for a long time. I need to find it.
