Back Yard Hummingbird

Hello Everyone!!!  Today JustRite are featuring their new August release, Back Yard Birds!  What a beautiful collection of birds to stamp, and even better to colour!!!  This is a set of 4 centres and borders in the 3 1/4inch size and today I've chosen to use this adorable hummingbird image and coloured it with Copics!!  Speaking of Copics - did you know that JustRite are now stocking 96 Copic colours which have been made available in Trio and Quad packs to make the choosing of colours so much easier!!!  This packs have been put together by the JR team, including Sharon Harnist and Debbie Olsen - both Copic Regional Instructors in the USA!!!

I started my card with a base of Old Olive and layered with white and some Hey Birdie DSP (pierced around the top).  Across the bottom I've added more Hey Birdie, punched with the Single Embossed Curve border punch.  The next layer is more Hey Birdie matted with white and across this I've added some white satin ribbon.  I've stamped the Hummingbird image from Back Yard Birds in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (0, RV10, RV21, RV23, RV25, YG03, YG91, YG93, YG95, BG0000, W1).  It was cut out with Large Circle Nestabilities and matted with another piece of Hey Birdie that was cut out with the Renaissance Hearts Pendant and popped up on foam tape.  To finish I added some white pearls to the corner and a white satin bow.

I did have a question from someone recently about who makes the Hey Birdie DSP - it is Kaisercraft - I'm sorry I couldn't get in touch with you because your email was blocked.
