Stamping Bella Challenge card and a Hummingbird

It’s almost 11:00 pm and I’m just posting on the blog for the day. No excuse except I just plain forgot. We finally had a quiet day here with very little getting done except a load of laundry that dried beautifully on the line and a few errands run. Mostly it was relaxing out in the backyard, reading or chatting. We have been so busy this last month that we just needed a day to do nothing. As we were eating our lunch in the backyard this hummingbird decided to eat right along with us so I ran back to the house and grabbed my camera and got this shot. Beautiful!

 
Today’s card is for the Stamping Bella challenge. She presented a photo with lots of flowers on it and said to pick what ever we wanted for a card. Here’s mine.


Image was coloured with Prismacolor pencils. All ovals are from Spellbinders. The paper is from the stash, as usual. The sentiment is from Hot Off the Press and I see I lost a gem on the right. That's an oops that I will fix. The flowers were pulled from a bunch from the dollar store and then I sprayed them with home made glimmer mist which stiffens them and makes them shiny and then I added a pearl in the centre and stuck some ferns underneath that were punched out with a Martha Stewart punch. The colouring of the image is what takes the longest and the rest comes together very quickly.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone. We are expecting two more gorgeous days here and I hope your weather is as nice where you are.

Cheers

Violet
