A flock of hummingbirds ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. Anyways it seemed a good time for me to use my beautiful hummingbird again, yes I am obsessed with this beautiful stamp set lol! Here is my card …

An A5 card, full of hummingbirds!
Good to post too
All the inky and painted details
One of the beautiful birds and that lovely phrase
You can see the shimmer from the Pebeo Dyna paint on this photograph

Created for me and especially for these Challenges


I’ve been stamping the birds with Versafine black and then using the Pebeo Dyna iridescent acrylic paints over the top which work the best and beautifully over black. I have to practice colouring the humminbirds but these are better than other birds I have coloured with the Pebeo Dyna paints. I love how the sentiment is white, I kept it that way, I used a blue re-inker to colour the background and added lots of splatters of paint which turned out a great way to use up the left over paint in my paint palette. This card did not make it into my mum’s or my Sister-in-law’s box of cards because I loved it so much I kept it for us to use 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

This is definitely a work out art!! The colours you used are fabulous together and love all the shimmer from the paint. I really like how you did the 'happy birthday' sentiment up the top with the circle details around it, very clever. So glad you shared this with us at TIME OUT!
