Patterned Paper Hummingbird
At Joan's Garden we were issued a challenge to create a card following the technique demonstrated by Heidi Blankenship: stamping on patterned paper. Off I went to thumb through my million (probably) sheets of paper. I chose this subtle floral flourish and paired it with a Sizzex embossing folder, Tapestry Stamps, Heartfelt Creations Hummingbird Stamp, and May Arts sheer ribbon. Inks from Memento and Stampin up were used. The Hummingbird was stampe on vellum. the image was colored with Copic markers, then flipped over and dry embossed to add dimension. Kaiser craft pearls were used to embellish the frame. What a difference from the original piece of patterned paper!
