Hummingbirds are beautiful...

Hello again,
I fell in love with a card I made a long time again, and decided to duplicate it before giving it to a friend. I had so much fun, I made several!

First, I masked each card off with low tack masking tape, and left a narrow strip showing. I used my blending tool to blend two distress inks together. These two were created with Bundled Sage blended with Salty Ocean. Used water to create waterspots.

Then I removed the masking tape, and stamped the hummingbird with versamark ink and used a glittery black embossing powder. Then used my MISTI to stamp my sentiment straight.

These two were created by blending Picked Raspberry and lots of Salty Ocean.

On this bottom card, I tried a new twist on matting it in black. I tried to show just a sliver on top and on the bottom. I am not sure I like it. What do you think? I know you can not see it in the photos, but the hummingbird is very glittery. I wish the pictures did it justice! 


Stamps:  Allegro - Penny Black, Free flight - Penny Black, Mindscapes - Inkadinkado
Inks: Distress inks: Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry, Bundled Sage. 
Paper: Neenah Solar White, black cardstock and Stampin' Up! colored cardstock
