Pretty Pink Posh Hummingbirds

Happy Wednesday crafty friends! Like many of you, I have been so anxious to get my hands on the Pretty Pink Posh Hummingbirds stamp and die set! I had such fun with these, I am in serious need of spring inspiration and they sure did that for me!



I wasn't sure about my background (the heart cover plate die is by Hero Arts from last year and the cloud stencil is by MFT) at first so I added a vellum overlay to soften the hearts and cloud mix.  I stamped my birds with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink to use my Copic markers in a mix of pastels in the BG, BV, R and Y families. I added some dot detail with the darkest Copic of that color family and some black gel pen on the eyes for definition.


I then die cut some MFT stitched clouds from both vellum and Neena 80lbs card stock and also die cut the Hero Arts Wonderful (Stamp and Cut set) from Tonic glitter card stock and a StickIt and fun foam sandwich for added dimension (I like to die cut my glitter and fun foam separately to make sure I get the best cut from my glitter paper).

I put all of my elements on the card base, once I was happy with the placement I added two white embossed sentiments from black card stock (also from the Hero Arts Stamp and Cut set) on the top and bottom of the wonderful.  

I finished the project with a rainbow assortment of sequins by Studio Katia and gold die cut hearts from the CAS-ual Fridays Fun-Fetti. Most of the products used were purchased at the Butterfly Reflections Ink on-line shop.

Thanks for taking the time!
