Hi folks, I have something a little bit different to show you today. I needed to make a card for my Dad for Father's Day, and had been sitting on these gorgeous stamps for a little while. They are from Designs By Ryn and are really unusual. I love hummingbirds, and this design really caught my eye. One of my followers is on the Design Team, and she has made some fabulous cards with some of Ryn's stamps. I have a few more of the stamps to play with, and already know what I want to make. Hopefully, I'll get to create the cards over the next couple of weeks, time permitting.
For this card, I stamped the Hummingbird onto white card, and masked the image with Eclipse masking tape. I made a background using Pan Pastels in various soft shades of blue, turquoise and lilac. I then stamped the leafy branch with Versafine, and used two shades of green to cover the stamped areas. I coloured the bird using Polychromos pencils, basing the colour scheme on various images that I found on Google. I stamped a simple Stampin' up sentiment in the corner using Memento Pear Tart ink.
My Dad lives 230 miles away from me, so I can't spend Father's Day with him. However, I'm going to see him next week, so that's not so bad. He is 80 next month, so I need to get my thinking cap on for a very special Birthday card!
I'd like to enter this card into the Pan Pastels Challenge which is for Father's Day/ Boys so my card fits the bill.
Thanks for stopping by, xx
