My 1st try . . .


Happy Friday Dear Friends!!!

I'm so glad you all enjoyed yesterday's post using a new technique to me ... where you create a background while coloring your die cut ... pretty cool!   HOWEVER, I did NOT get it RIGHT on the first try!  Nope, not good at all!  So, as not to waste that panel of watercolor paper, I simply flipped it over and used the TH distress oxide inks I had sitting in front of me and created this background panel.

The hummingbird was my first attempt also so used him on this card ... turning a negative into a positive!!  I've actually used the same basic design and turned it into a birthday card.

 I used the Memory Box Wrapped Stitched Frames to die cut the frame and the Memory Box 'Forest Hummingbird'.  My sentiment stamps came from the Penny Black 'Special Wishes' stamp set.

Challenges to share in:
Memory Box March Challenge - Beautiful Backgrounds
CCEE Stampers Challenge - Old Stuff
Krafty Chicks Challenge #549 - Stamp Act

 Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you're inspired by today's share and will give it a try yourself.  Isn't it fun being inspired by each other?  I know it has certainly helped me through these long winter/pandemic days!  Stay healthy out there ... PLEASE wear your mask!

 As always . . .
