Okay... if you follow me regularly you probably recognize the image in the above graphic as the digital version (Hummingbird Paradise) which I colored when it was released on June 15. Trust me, you get all that and more in the Floribunda clear set.
Today I gave it a little bit softer look, but still colorful, by watercoloring with Tombow markers. As you can see, I isolated just a small part of the image by stamping the whole thing then cutting with an oval die. I turned the oval upside down so the hummingbird would have a flower to enjoy. It works!
In case you'd like to know, the die is by Marianne Designs, called Anja's Oval. I adore anything with lattice, especially when it comes to flower stamps.
Marcella has packed this stamp set with beautiful sentiments that pair up perfectly for the card front and the inside.
I'm so smitten with this stamp set I didn't want to put it away. The two cards pictured below were made with relatively little coloring. The one is gold embossed on green with watercolored dahlias and hummer. The other is stamped in blue on blue, then the background filled in with a white Prismacolor pencil. I stamped the upper corner in blue again on watercolor paper and watercolored just the fuchsias with Tombow markers. Fussy cut and glued in place. The hummer comes as a separate stamp. I watercolored him, too. He's very easy to cut out by hand.
Why, yes, I have been busy!
