Thinking of You Hummingbird Card


Lately I have needed to make many Thinking of You cards for friends and relatives, and for this one I played with a new technique using my Brusho Crystal Colours. I picked out a beautiful hummingbird from Earth Art International and spritzed it with water. Then I sprinkled some blues and green Brushos directly on the stamp, spritzed again and placed a piece of watercolor paper directly onto the prepared stamp. The card above is the second one I made. Here is a picture of the first impression on the wet stamp:
Both are beautiful and colorful, but on the second generation, you can see the details of the stamp a bit better. I cut both pieces out with a stitched rectangle die from Lil' Inker, added the die cut sentiment (Penny Black) and some blue candy dots. One more cool way to use Brushos or Bisters!

I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenges at 613 Avenue Create and Scribble and Scrap.
