Hummingbird wishes

Hello Friends

I’ve been busy in my craft room this long weekend! First up today is the card I made for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge using products by Penny Black.

I knew I wanted to use the wonderful fuchsia die (51-045) as well as the gorgeous hummingbird stamp from the Flying Colors set (40-739) set.

After colouring the fuchsia with distress inks, I googled images for hummingbirds…. which I don’t think I have ever seen in real life – they aren’t native to Europe and I don’t recall seeing them on my travels at all. Anyway, I digress, I couldn’t believe it when I found this image – look at the colours of that bird – and he is with a fuchsia! Amazing!

I coloured the hummingbird with distress markers and then fussy cut the image. I created a blended background with some distress inks and then cut a panel using the Antique Frames dies (51-397).

Following the sketch, I added a die cut strip (Geometric borders – 51-196) and then adhered the panel and images. To complete my card, I added a few iridescent gems and a sentiment from the Snippets set (30-283).

Thanks for stopping by!
