Beautiful Hummingbird


I recently purchased my first stamps from Artful Inkables. Isn't this Hummingbird Set beautiful? I stamped it in Chocolate Chip Craft ink and heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I love the look of that ink and EP together -- it gives a shimmery, coppery look to the image. I stamped directly onto the BasicGrey Perhaps paper. The sentiment is from the set Motivational Centers, from Mona Lisa Moments by Cornish Heritage Farms. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink. I rounded one set of opposing corners on the sentiment panel and mat, and I mounted it on Pop Dots. I machine stitched around the edges, then I added some ribbon and Dew Drops to finish the card.

Tomorrow is ATS Challenge Day -- I hope you'll stop back! Thanks so much for the visit -- have a great day! :)

Wonderful design, Christina! I'll have to try that combo of Chocolate Chip and ep. I bet it looks fantastic IRL!
