Perfect Picture Thanks - TGIF #42 & Pal Paper Arts #287

Finally the cold snap we've been experiencing in southern Ontario has lifted, but the milder weather has heralded the onset of snowy weather for the next few days.    Anything is better than -42 C with the wind chill factored in.

When I saw the colour challenge with Pals Paper Arts I immediately thought of the hummingbird in Picture Perfect, and I combined the colour challenege with the sketch challenge with TGIF challenges.


On a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock the hummingbird was stamped using all 3 colours.  The first colour was Old Olive stamped off once; the second colour was calypso coral at the neck area only, and finally Lost Lagoon on the body.  This image was cut out and the edges sponged with Lost Lagoon ink.  A small black marker was used to highlight the eye.

The flower was stamped with Calypso coral only.  The first layer the Calypso coral was stamped off three stimes; the second inking was stamped off twice; and the final stamping was full strength calypso coral.  The 2  leaves were stamped with Old Olive - first with the ink stamped off once, and the second time stamped full strength ink.  Both the flower and the leaves were cut out.  The edges of the flower were sponged with Calypso coral ink; the leaves with Old Olive.

The base cardstock is Old Olive, layered with Whisper White sponged with Old Olive ink.  On top of this were two pieces of Pretty Petals DSP, whose edges were also sponged.

The hummingbird, flower and leaves were adhered to a 3 1/2 by 2 5/8" of Whisper White cardstock.  The flower and leaves were adhered directly to the cardstock; the hummingbird with dimensionals.

A botanical bloom was die cut in Lost Lagoon cardstock using the botanical builder die The center was die cut in Calypso coral; the leaves in Old Olive.  All edges were sponged in their corresponding colours and the flower assembled.  The completed flower was adhered to the left side of the image piece.

The fine tips of the following markers (Lost Lagoon, Calypso Coral, Old Olive) were used to make dots on the background, concentrating the dots more around the images.

The image panel was matted with Calypso Coral cardstock and mounted to the card front using dimensionals.

Some dazzling details was applied to the flower and bird.

The sentiment is from "Another Thank You" and was stamped in Black Memento ink
