Charming Hummingbirds

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is well and happy. I have had so much fun over the last couple of days catching up with blogging friends posts.  I’m not quite finished yet as I like to take my time and read all of the posts but I will get there.

I wanted to share this card today because is shows another of the new stamps from Crafty Individuals. There are 6 new stamps in the range which have been designed by a lady called Maria Kitano for Crafty Individuals.  They really are amazing stamps to use.  There are 3 different owl stamps, the hare and the moon, the kingfisher and the hummingbirds.


I stamped the image using Black Staz-On onto coated card stock. I masked the birds and flowers and coloured the card stock with Distress Inks. I removed the masks and coloured the image. I didn’t bother covering the leaves with a mask as the base colour was green, I just went over those with a darker shade of green.

The card looked fine as it was but I wanted to make the hummingbirds more of a focal point so I stamped them again, cut them out, coloured them and decoupaged them on the topper.

As always everything got a quick spray of fixative.

I added some paint splatters to the background and added the sentiment.

The sentiment is really too big for this but hey ho.

Thank you for looking.

Take care, Flo x

    Beautiful, Florence…I don’t think the sentiment is too big – it stands out nicely on its own without taking away from the birds (my opinion). The colors are lovely and calming and I like the splatter on the background, as the spots break up the background with some ‘splash’ ;). I can not seem to master the splatter method – if they come out looking good, it’s usually through happenstance more than skill – so, nicely done.

    Have a glorious evening, my sweet friend…

    The focal image is popping off the background as if 3D, do I spot a little bit of shading that makes all the difference? Lovely card, Flo!

    It almost feels like the birds are in front of that blue background…And beautifully coloured again! I enjoy seeing your samples here! Hugs, Gerrina
