Hummingbird Delight

Hello Everyone,

Firstly, a very big welcome to all of my new followers - I am delighted to say that there are over 600 followers now and I appreciate everyone of you. 
Today I thought I would share a project that we did in class a couple of weeks ago.
A fabulous set of stamps and matching dies from Stampendous are the main focus and we all enjoyed working with these really lovely products. 

I chose to colour the images using pro-markers but it would look equally as lovely using distress ink markers or watercolour pencils.  The parts that are the dies are the 2 birds and the 2 flower heads that the birds are attached to.  They really cut so well and extremely acurate.  You can use the stamps as a stand alone project too and they work so well.
The background has been embossed using the Crafter's companion dry stone wall embossing folder which is one of the best I have used for its realistic appearance.  I embossed it onto centura pearl cardstock and then distressed it with Vintage Photo ink.
The stamped image was finished off with peeled pain distress ink around the outside and UTEE crystals to add some interest into the bottom of the picture.
I hope that you have enjoyed it as much as I did making it.
The stamps and the dies are available on our website letscreateartandcrafts.co.uk and we are still running the Spring offer of 10% off any order up to and including Good Friday and remember P and P is free over £10! 
Thankyou so much for popping in and hope to see you again on Thursday. 
Please leave a comment if you have time - it would be great to hear from you,
Bye for now
