Inspired By Stamping: New Hummingbirds Set


It's time for another day of release week for the Inspired By Stamping store!  I'm really excited about my card today for a few reasons.  First of all, it's my first attempt at no line watercoloring and I think it actually looks ok.  Secondly, the set we're showcasing today is FABULOUS!  It's called Hummingbirds....check out my card!



Like I stated, this is my first attempt at no lines watercoloring.  I started by stamping the hummingbird and flower images from the Hummingbirds stamp set onto water color paper.  I then watercolored them using Distress Markers and then filled in the background as well.




I then stamped a sentiment from the new Flower of the Month: Pansy stamp set in black ink and added a bit of bling with a lot of shine.  So pretty! :)



I then layered the panel onto a black cardstock mat and then a card base that had been prepped with some glitter paper, too.  I am very pleased with this card and I now how to find the perfect recipient!  What are your thoughts?  I'd love for you to leave me a comment to tell me what you think!



I'm entering this card into the following challenges: Through the Purple Haze: Spring, Without Words: Dreaming of Spring, Tip Top Tuesday: Something New, and Cards and More: Animals.

That's all for me today!  I hope you take a chance to go and grab this newest release from the store and, if you spend $50, you will get a free stamp set!  Also, come and join in the fun of our current challenge, too!  If you use products from the Inspired By Stamping store, link them up in the Customer Gallery as well!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
