How about some color today and lots of it? I went right to town as soon as Marcella at Power Poppy made this Hummingbird Paradise digital stamp available. It's a dream! Trust me, you don't have to color the whole thing, but I couldn't resist. I used Prismacolor pencils on the flowers and bird, Copics on the background. To finish, I dotted here and there with white acrylic paint.
What kind of hummingbird is this? I have no idea. I'm hummingbird challenged so I probably mixed a few different types together, but I like blues and greens and it fit right in with the flowers. I chose pencils for the detail and the ease with which you can blend one color into the next, hoping for an iridescent quality. I still need a lot of practice, but I'm working on it.
In the next photo you can get a better idea the texture added by the dots of white acrylic paint.
That's a lot of color, isn't it? What a gorgeous digi set this is.
But wait... that's not all. Check out Perched in the Orchids, another new digital set at Power Poppy. I haven't had a chance to color it yet, but hope to before long. It's already printed and waiting.
I'm heading back to the coloring table. There's lots going on in my stamp room this month. Stay well and I'll see you back here soon!
