Beautiful birds and spring flowers...

It has been a while since I played with this stamp set. There is something about hummingbirds that the moment I saw them I fell completely and totally in love with them. Because of some of this month’s challenge I knew it was time for this stamp set to come out and play lol! No pastels this time as hummingbirds are not pale or pastel coloured. I have just had a light bulb moment, lol, so you will be seeing more of this set hopefully soon. The Winnie and Walter stamp set has been moved so that I can’t grab that cute little bird for a while at least!
After stamping the birds and flowers I used my Spectrum AquaTints (ATs) to colour the birds and flowers and left them to dry. Once they dry I used the ATs again to colour the background. I used one of my own H2Os pink backgrounds that I cut to size and distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distressing tool. I did the same with the stamped and coloured in panel and inked up both the stamped and the pink papers and attached them to my card. I coloured the blossoms and flowers then glued them in place and I added Stickles to them: simples lol!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
