Hummingbird treatPosted: May 30, 2016 Filed under: Sweet Visit | Tags: Penny Black stamps, Tsukineko Memento inks 9 Comments
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. 🙂
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.
Go for it Judith!!!!
Thanks Heather for your lovely hummingbird inspiration!!!
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.
