Humming Bird

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A busy day here at Simpson towers, preparation work is underway for my demonstrations next Friday at the Happy Stampers (Port Sunlight) where I will be demonstrating on Imagination Crafts stand.

As promised here is another card made using one of the backgrounds I created using my Gelli Plate.


Recipe

1. 6 x 6 blue pearlescent card base which I have matted and layered white card which has been distressed with Faded Jeans.
2. The next layer is the background made using the Gelli Plate and Imagination Crafts Heart Flourish with blue acrylic paints. I have distressed the edges with Tumble Glass and wrapped a ribbon around in blue before layering down.
3. I stamped the humming bird and flowers using Faded Jeans, and Tumbled glass when watercoloured them.  Once dried I cut them out and created the scene.
4. To finish off I added 3 blue pearl gems.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
