Hi everyone! Are you as happy as I am that Friday is here? I have taken the day off work today and made it my mission to go shopping for that dreaded dress and not come home until I find it! Please wish me luck! If I get back early enough I will be able to spend some of my day off stamping!
I finally tried my hand at coloring the free hummingbird available at squigglefly. I used my copic markers and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
I used a coluzzle to cut around the bird and then I cut around the wings. I chalked a little for background color and then stamped the greeting in a teal color. The greeting is from Stampin Up's Sincere Salutation set. That set is one I have certainly used a lot!
I cut two larger circles in different shades of blue and attached the image to the circles off center a bit. There are dimensionals under the wings so they are popped up a bit. On the card base I embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder. The folder is writing and the card had to be inserted sideways for the writing to be oriented correctly on the card. This meant I had to move the folder over and emboss a second time to get the entire front of the card embossed. If you are observant you will notice that I had the folder backwards on one side so the words are debossed on the right side. Ooops! I almost did a new card, but in the end I didn't think it was too bad looking as it was so I left it. Did you notice? If you did, did you think I did it on purpose? yeah, uh I meant to do that! LOL!
Well, enjoy your day and I'll see you tomorrow!
