Humming Along.....

Morning all.
I hope you are all enjoying the Easter break.

I wish to start with some news!!! I wish to pass on my woo-hoo's and sincere congrats to Andrea who on the 21st became a "Grandy" for the very 1st time to the beautiful Bree Melissa. I am over the moon for her and her family. I still have a big grin on my face.

Today I bring another colour challenge from Ink4U.

This one for me was relatively easy as I wanted the Sahara to be a focus. I had only recently acquired the colour and was very eager to bust it out. I also was keen to use a fave set of mine....Elements of Style. This was my answer to the challenge.....

It was my initial intention to stamp the flowers just once, but it looked extremely bare, so I filled in the gaps with the flowers to get the desired effect. I had also seen "breasted" versions of the hummingbird around the place and thought I'd give it a go. The challenge was that I did not have a More Mustard SWM, so I had to use the corner of my stamp pad. Still I was happy. The bird was popped up on a dimensional.

Once I got the bird cut out the card came together really easily. I thought it may make a nice sympathy card. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for popping by again and please stay safe over this Easter period.

Stuff Used:
CS: (SU) Bravo Burgandy, More Mustard, Very Vanilla
Ink: (SU) Bravo Burgandy, More Mustard, Sahara Sand
