This is a farewell to the hummingbirds here in Ohio. I’m always so sad when then leave. But I can hardly blame them for heading for warmer climates in preparation for the Autumn and Winter to come.
I feel this card would be a good Sympathy card. Sympathy cards are always so hard for me to come up with. I try to create a peaceful scene that is not sad.
Let’s get started.
|Stamps: Stampin’ Up “Baroque Motifs” & Cornish Heritage Farms “Hummingbird”|
|Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White, Handsome Hunter & Sage Shadow|
|Ink: Stampin’ Up Sage Shadow, Handsome Hunter & Not Quite Navy|
|Accessories: Versamark Pad, Fine detail clear embossing powder, heat gun, sponge, ribbon, silver brads|
Stamped Baroque Motifs Flourish twice on a 4″ x 5.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock using Versamark.
Stamped Hummingbird using Versamark.
Heat embossed images using fine detail clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
Sponged Sage Shadow ink all over the card stock using a circular motion.
Sponged Not Quite Navy ink on the card stock using a circular motion.
Wow, I can’t remember the last time I used the ink color Handsome Hunter, but I pulled it out this morning and sponged it over the Not Quite Navy ink, not covering it entirely.
Stamped Flourish at the bottom of the card stock using Sage Shadow ink.
Wiped the ink from the embossed images using a soft rag.
Sponged some more Not Quite Navy ink at the bottom left corner of the card stock.
Assembled card and here it is finished measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
I hope your day is filled with peaceful scenes and peaceful thoughts.
Until my next post. . . . . . . . . . . .
