Hummingbird in Flight

 Adding color to this hummingbird is easy using this three-step stamp set. Each step adds a bit more detail to the hummingbird. So, if you change the color on each step, the details will vary in color, making you a creative genius. By adding an extra wing and tail feathers, this hummingbird is caught in mid flight. What do you think?

   Picture Perfect

   Whisper White A-2, 1 x 5-1/2 (3), 2-3/4" Sq., Scraps
   Soft Sky 1-1/8 x 5-1/2 (3), 3-1/4" Sq.
   Cucumber Crush 3" Sq.

   Tuxedo Black Memento
   Daffodil Delight
   Tangerine Tango
   Tempting Turquoise
   Soft Sky

   3-Step Stamping
   Dry Embossing

   Tiny Triangles Embossing Folder
   Paper Snips

First, I stamped the hummingbird twice on a scrap piece of Whisper White using Soft Sky. 

The second stamp adds a bit more detail to the hummingbird. I used Tempting Turquoise.

The third detailed stamp was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento.

I then stamped a bit of Daffodil Delight on the wing and the neck. 

I then added just a tinge of Tangerine Tango to the neck. I then fussy cut the hummingbird. On the second one, I used the wing and the tail only. You can use a scrap of Whisper White that is large enough for just that part of the hummingbird. 

I then took the Whisper White square and stamped my sentiment on the bottom right corner using Tuxedo Black Memento.

The Whisper White square was then adhered to the Cucumber Crush square and then onto the Soft Sky square. I set this aside.

I then took the three strips of Whisper White and dry embossed them using the Tiny Triangles Embossing Folder. Of course you can use any embossing folder that you have on hand. You can also skip the embossing if you choose.

I then adhered the Whisper White strips onto the Soft Sky Strips. These were then placed on the Whisper White card base. I then adhered the top strip to the card base, followed by the bottom strip, and lastly, the middle strip was adhered. This way I was able to space them evenly on the card base.

I then added the Square panel with the sentiment onto the middle of the card using dimensionals.

I adhered the hummingbird using dimensionals. I adhered the extra wing and tail.

I cased this card from Brandy Godush-Cox. You can click on her name and see her card and video!
