Hummingbird Card

Hummingbird Card

Hello, Kay M here to share a card I've made using the fabulous new stencils, stamps and Luscious powders that Kay launched on Hochanda last week. You still catch up with the shows if you missed them on Rewind on the Hochanda site.

The hummingbird stencil was used on coloured shrink film to make the cute embellishment. Posiedon and Teal Luscious powders were mixed separately with a little Slap-It-On Matt and sponged through the stencil. The beak was sponged with Fuzzy Pop and a little Slap-It-OnMatt. It was left to dry.

A little water and 2 drops of glycerine was worked into the the same sponge pad as for the hummingbird and worked over a 9.5cmx14.5cm rectangle of hot pressed watercolour paper. The Bubblewrap stamp was sprizted with water and repeated stamped over and dried. Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink was 2nd and 3rd generation stamped with the Words stamp, and the edges sponged.

CherryLips and Unicorn Tears Luscious powders were mixed with Super ThickSlap-it-On and applied through the Cherry Blossom stencil over the background. When dry the background was adhered to the front of an A6 white card blank.

A sentiment from Think Evil Thoughts was stamped onto more watercolour paper, cut out and edged with the remaining Cherry Lips/Slap-It-On mix.
The hummingbird was cut out and shrunk, the edges drawn with a blue permanent marker. Then a mix of glossy Slap-It-On and Teal Luscious powder was painted over and dried. A gem was added for the eye.  

To finish, the words and hummingbird are attached to the card.

I do hope you have been inspired!

Thank Kay M x

  2. Such a pretty card Kay and love the blue over the green for the stencilled bird and didn't realise you could get such bright colours of shrink plastic, and the background stamping and stencilling complements it beautifully, also love the pink blossom branch, so Springlike. x
