Hummingbird treat

hummingbird treat Heather Telford

I went searching for my bird feeders yesterday but couldn’t find them. I have been a bit discouraged in the past when my bird feeders have doubled as squirrel feeders. The hummingbird feeder is a different deal to the seed feeders of course as it needs syrup. I do know where that is so perhaps I can tempt some hummingbirds to hover in my garden.

These hibiscus and the hummingbird were inked with memento inks, spritzed with water then a little blending added after stamping. You can see I added a generous amount of splatter around the leaves too.

    Love this watercolor. For some reason I can’t get my watercolor to look like this as mine always seem blurry instead of artsy. But I won’t give up until I can get it. 🙂

    Very pretty.

    Lovely! I’ve never done any stamping. This makes it look like a lot of fun! I’ll add that to my “want-to-do” list.

    This is so beautiful Heather and the colours are so brght and pretty. Just enough water to mix the colours but keep the shape and form of the stamping. x

    A hummingbird and I startled each other on our deck just a few days ago! They always seem to like the nasturtiums I grow, not that they’re anywhere near blooming yet. I really like the loose watercolour look of this card.
