For my card I’ve used Hummingbird from Digi Doodle Shop.I wanted to give the bird some real life iridescence.So I dug out my Twinkling H2o’s from the depth of my crafty stash and dusted them down.I think I’m a little out of practice tho’.I prefer my colouring using AquaMarkers on the flowers,beak and illusion of sky in the background. I stamped the greeting underneath the image and cut out using Nesties.I chose the words because as far as I can remember I’ve always been in awe of these beautiful creatures and love to see one in it’s own natural habitat.I’d already decided to team this paper with the image from the start but the whole card ended up a lot more ‘blingier’ than I’d planned.But I think it suits the shininess of the bird.Supplies : Image : Hummingbird by Digi Doodle Shop Sentiment : Hero Arts Clear Design Anytime Messages Colouring mediums : Twinkling H2o’s,AquaMarkers Paper and card : DP from stash,coloured cardstock Core’dinations Roy G.
