If you've visited my blog before you know I love doing Color Dares! Let's pull out our greens and join in on this one...
To start with I pulled out my favorite three green inks: Willow, Clover, and Evergreen. I also pulled together some White Daisy Cardstock and a sponge dauber. (Note: I have an old style dauber, but these → Sponge Daubers work great, too!)
Then I got busy blending some ink...
While that background ink dried I started to work on my hummingbird. I used my new Sweet Hummingbird Stamp + Thin Cuts (Z3725) for this card design.
First I stamped the hummingbird in black and then I "watercolored" him in using my green inks and a Small Round Waterbrush. This is so fun to do!
While the hummingbird dried I attached the my green blended piece (trimmed to 3.75" x 5") to a piece of black cardstock (trimmed to 4" x 5.25") using Tombow Permanent Adhesive. I then attached the black/green blended piece to the card base using 3-D Foam Tape.
All that was left to do was add my hummingbird, my sentiment, and a few white sequins out of the Crafty Loose Sequins collection. This was a fun card to make and I hope it will brighten somebody's day!
