Serendipity Stamps - BIRDS!


This week's challenge at Serendipity Stamps is to use a bird on your project!  I chose the beautiful and realistic hummingbird.  I used Ranger's Distress Markers directly on the stamps.  After I stamped the images I used a waterbrush to blend the colors.  I used darker colors around the edges of the hummingbird.

After using Labels 25 to cut out my background, I airbrushed it with Copic blues.  Cheery Lynn Designs makes some great vine dies and I used 2 of them on the background.  This was a really FUN card to make! 
Finished card measures 6 3/8 x 4 1/4.
    There is a great special going on at Serendipity right now!
