Inkadinkado Hummingbird


I bought this stamp several months ago, thinking how beautiful it was and having all these ideas about what I would do with it. Well, it's been sitting on my desk, staring at me ever since then. I was rather intimidated by it and I was worried that I wouldn't do it justice. So the other day, I just decided to go for it!!

I stamped the image (which is rather large) in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink onto some SU watercolour paper. Then I got out my Aquapainters and inks and went to work. I used Always Artichoke for the hummingbird and the leaves, Purely Pomegranate for his little tummy, Bashful Blue and Brocade Blue for the flowers (I think they are petunias, no?) and surrounded them in So Saffron. The card base is an Always Artichoke square card and I stamped it with the Cracked background stamp. I matted the focal image on Bashful Blue and then Brocade Blue cardstock, added some blue velvet ribbon and some hardware from We R Memory Keepers and stamped 'thank you' on some more BB to fit inside the round bookplate. I think it turned out okay, what do you think??

Also I'd just like to wish all my US friends a Happy and safe Thanksgiving!! Fill up on that turkey and have some creamy mashed potatoes and yummy gravy for me, will ya?? You do know that gravy is a beverage in my house right?? So load up!!! hahaha!! Oh and be sure to get lots of rest tonight so you can shop your little hearts out tomorrow morning!! Good luck!
