Hummingbird Thank You Card for PP439

Ready to create a hummingbird thank you card? It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

hummingbird thank you cardThis week, Claire has a wonderful sketch for us, filled with lovely layers. I was in the mood to do a little watercoloring, so I pulled out my Humming Along set, and colored away.  I hope you like today’s card.

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Claire’s sketch is one of my favorites.  I love the layers, and the large focal circle is just perfect for highlighting an image, such as the hummingbird from the Humming Along set. I pulled out my Stampin’ Blends and colored away. (The complete details can be found in the free tutorial.) I think all hummingbirds are deserving of a little sparkle,  so I added a few swishes of Wink of Stella.  And don’t forget the details! I used a Basic Gray watercolor pencil to add a few checks and feather marks.
