My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

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.

So pretty Nancy! You do a great job of cutting out for dimension! I know what you mean about the purple...I thought I had purple ribbon for one of mine and got it all put together...no purple ribbon! Gonna have to stock up on some of those pretty spring colors!

HUGS!
