Today, I'm sharing a card that I started late last night. I stamped the images but my head was starting to bob! So I decided to colour it with fresh eyes this morning. I completed it this afternoon, luckily before the natural daylight disappeared from my lounge so I could get a half decent photo :)
I was originally going to frame my image panel with a black mat before adhering to a white card base but, unusually for me I've chosen to mount it straight onto a black card base instead. Once I'd coloured it in I thought these colours would look great against a black background and as the outline of the stamps and the sentiment are black I think it all ties in nicely. What do you think?
The hummingbird and flowers are two separate stamps and I've stamped only about a third of the flower stamp and stamped it upside down. They are from the same Kanban set. This was a complete bargain. A local craft shop was closing down recently (probably the only one anywhere near me now apart from Hobbycraft *sobs*) and the owner was selling her stamp sets half price AND buy one get one free! So this was one of two large stamp sets I treated myself to and at the bargain price of £5.50! I've stamped the two images in Memento ink and coloured with my FlexMarkers. I used a rectangular die and then stamped the sentiment before mounting the panel on 3D foam pads.
