The challenge over at Global Design Project this week is a colour challenge, as below.


 I've used the hummingbird from the Picture Perfect set together with the new Painter's Palette set for my card.  I loved this colour combination although I only had an ink for the Island Indigo but less is more no?

I've been doing a lot of practising with this bird to get him right and its still a bit hit and miss.

  A TIP - I've actually numbered the birds on the little tabs so that it doesn't get confusing once they are off their backing paper.

 I stamped the Tip Top Taupe cardstock with one of the background stamps from Painter's Palette in the same ink.  It gives a nice texture to the paper. The easel has been stamped in Early Espresso - the bird has been stamped in Mint Macaron, Early Espresso and a touch of Island Indigo.

The white part of the easel has been cut out and put on dimensionals.  The part with the bird on has also been put on dimensionals so it gives this card a lot of dimension.  Wink of Stella on the bird makes him shine.

 I finished it off with a sentiment from Painter's Palette and a touch of Mint of Macaron dotted lace trim ribbon.  I don't have much ribbons at the moment but I do love this one. 

The eagle eyed amongst you may notice I've only used three of the hummingbird stamps here - nos 1, 2 and 4.
