Forgotten Friday 16- Hummingbird

Hi folks, it's Friday again, which means that it's time to rummage through your craft rooms again, and make something with your neglected stash. Sorry my post is a bit late, but Blogger has been down, so I couldn't create my post.
This week, I have chosen to use lots of neglected items on my card. Firstly, Papersoft Colour, which I bought ages ago, tried, and consigned to a box. This blends beautifully, and I have chosen cream, lilac and violet to colour my card.
The stamps that I have used, are a flowerhead from Little Claire, a Humming Bird from the 'Mindscapes' set by Inkadinkadoo, a sentiment by Tim Holtz, and a script background stamp by Viva for My Paper World, designed to go with the Coloursoft range.
I stamped the flowerhead onto a cotten linen fabric, and stuck beads onto the top with silicone glue, to represent the stamens.

I'm off to the Happy Stampers Show at Port Sunlight tomorrow. It's the first time that I've been to this particular show, and I'm really looking forward to it. I'm staying with my Daughter to break the journey up, we followed each other up the motorway today, so it didn't feel like we were driving on our own. We are having a night in front of the TV, which will make a nice change.
If you make something with your Forgotten Stash, leave a comment, and I'll pop along to your Blog, and take a look.
Thanks for stopping by today, Judith xx

This is beautiful Judith. I love that hummingbird and have used it many times myself. It works really well with those lovely flowers and they in turn have worked very well on the fabric. Altogether lovely!

Have fun tomorrow my friend and make Jo spend then I won't feel so guilty, Ha! Ha!

Say hi to Moira and Jo CS for me too.
