Wee Hummingbird and Petunias
I've got a really busy week coming up so I'm trying to get a head with my card making. I have so many of these Gorgeous Fred She Daid images and I just had to drop a few house keeping chores to make another card.
The images on this card are from the Wee Hummingbird & Petunias Colored Collection from Fred She Said. I Love purple but I'm amazed at the lack of purple dp's I have. I found one piece of dp for my background from Basic Grey but that was it. So, I used Gypsy and Sky Blue Cardstock from CTMH and then made my own dp using those colors and a little green. That's the piece on the left of the card. I stamped and heat embossed with silve EP, then sponged on the colors of ink that I need to match. The hummingbird was cut out, puffed and mounted with foam tape. I alsp printed out more petunias then the original image, cut some out, puffed them and also layered them with foam tape.
The starting inspiration for this card came from a beautiful sketch from A Spoonful of Sugar.
The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
