Hummingbird Hello

I have had this stamp in my stash for a little while now. I think it is a gorgeous stamp that can be used for so many different occasions but for some reason, I have been scared to try colouring it.
However, for this weeks post, I wanted something that had a Spring feel to it, something I could use some bright spring colours with, so I sat down, took a deep breath..............and then this happened <smile>

Sketch Inspiration

After colouring this amazing stamp with alcohol markers, I fussy cut it leaving a thin white edge and set it aside. I cut out a circle and added some puffy clouds using a cloud die, dauber and light blue ink. The hummingbird and flower were added using some foam pop dots. Next I cut my patterned papers and a cardstock backing piece to match. The scripty word die was taped down on the patterned paper (with painters tape so it didn't rip the paper) and run through my big kick. The die was run again using a piece of matching cardstock. I glued the cardstock word down as an inset and added some ribbon and gumdrops to finish off my card.
