I am in love with this lovely new set of stamps – of course I am – it’s a hummingbird and one big enough that I can easily paint it with acrylics and watercolours lol! He/she really is a beautiful stamp and it takes all the hard work out of the occasion just because it’s prominent and big enough to be the star of the project!
I used on of the Visible Image monoliths to create this project. I coloured it with my PaperArtsy Fresco acrylic paints and left the monolith to dry. I used black Versafine ink pad to ink up the stamp and then stamped the hummingbird onto the monolith. I dried the stamped hummingbird then used a That’s Crafty mini stencil to apply some Viva Decor Crackle paint onto the monolith and I left it to dry overnight.
I used black Versafine ink pad to stamp the hummingbird onto a snippet of Sheena Douglass white stamping card. I made sure the image was dry before colouring him with Pebeo Dyna acrylic paints and left him to dry overnight. The next day I fussy cut the hummingbird and gently shaped him with my fingers to give him some depth.
I attached a snippet of fabric to the monolith and adhered the coloured hummingbird over the stamped humminbird using Collall 3D glue gel. I’ve decoupaged this beautiful bird onto the monolith and I added several gems and a Tim Holtz word chip to finish! My mister has told me I’m not allowed to give this to anyone in the family unless I make a better one for us lol! So I guess I will have to make some more for gifting 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
