I did something on this challenge that I don't do very well - paper piecing. Today over at Tuesday Throwdown, we are being sponsored by Fred, She Said Stamps and I chose their gorgeous image, Hummingbird and Petunias. I love how unique hummingbirds are in their flight patterns. If you can think of a diection, a hummingbird can fly it! When I was living in Ohio, Mom had some hummingbirds that nested in the tree in the front yard and they would come to the front window and eat from the feeder. Their colors were so clear and vibrant. I loved sitting there watching them feet and the flit away. Talk about relaxing!
Here's my card for today:
I adore this image and the layout is from the sketch from Catch The Bug Challenge. Here's a picture of it:
I colored he image with coics and paper pieced the leaves with some solid yellow/green paper. I added stickles to the flowers and bird and used my nestabilities to cut out the image and border. The tulle is from Joann Fabrics and the pearls from Studio 112. The papers are some of my hording from BasicGrey.
I love the look of this from the sides.
I want to try and use more sentiments on my cards and this image reminds me so much of the hope of spring and deided to add it and another butterfly to the inside.
