The Hummingbird Collection

Happy Sunday , It's a little dull here in the South West but very, very humid!
I have Simply Cards & Papercraft delivered each month
and when it was delivered the other day I could not wait to play
What a stunning Hummingbird collection we were well and truly spoilt

I am very afraid of frogs in real life but this little chap was yelling at me to use him
I decided I wanted to use nice fresh colours of green and yellow with white

I started with a 6 x 6 white card blank
Using the freebie embossing folder which is 5 x 5
Cutting a hole in the center
Mounted onto some fresh green cardstock

I added in some bakers twine and adhered all to cardbase

With a slightly smaller die , cut another smaller circle
and then the stamps came into play
I stamped the frog and the sentiment using Memento ink Bamboo Leaves
Using Water paints to colour up
(using blue I flicked about for some effect - not much I'm not that brave!)
I then used the fern stamp around the edge
and attached with foam pads

For the Flowers I stamped them twice, the underneath flowers are painted as are the leafs
For the top flowers I used Brusho's Yellow and lemon 
added a few tiny pearls once dry and a little yellow stickles



Finished of with some faux stitching, a few fern leafs from a fern die and a button
Thank you for looking have a great day
