This card was totally inspired by the fabulous Brandy Cox, a few weeks ago she created a great card using this humming bird in a similar colour combination as well as creating a bird with two wings. I loved it and just had to have a go to!
This bird is stunning! I will admit that I bought the Picture Perfect stamp set purely for the Rose stamp (Which I used in my Make It Monday video yesterday!) but once it arrived this bird just made my heart sing! I have so many ideas for this one, and so little time to play with it! There are so many colour combinations that would make this bird look awesome, here I have used Soft Sky, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black and Delightful Dijon. I never even thought of using Basic Black on this bird until I saw Brandy’s sample, but it really works!
The humming bird stamp actually only has one wing, but I really love the idea of adding a second to really make the bird appear as if in flight. I simply stamped an extra bird and just fussy cut the wing, then added the second wing behind the fussy cut bird with a dab of Tombow glue
I had to use my favourite embossing folder on this card too! My Lovely Lace embossing folder looks worse for wear, I really need to buy a new one, but it still works – even if it is held together by parcel tape! (on an important note; this is why I don’t advise you run your embossing folders through the big shot sideways too often, or you will need parcel tape too!)
