Bubble humming bird

Good morning all and welcome to my blog today

I hope you are well and the sun is shinning on you today. 

The weather is so much better than yesterday and will show a few photos at the bottom
of my blog today of this morning. 

Mist in the woods.

I have been using a new item over the last few days to be able to enter into the following


So here are my steps in making my card. 

I put watercolour paints onto my glass mat first and then sprayed with water 
(the paints)

Then used a scrap of bubble wrap and layered it onto the "wet" paint
then pressed the bubble wrap onto card stock. 

Nice effect 

Then used a stamp by Ryn Designs of a humming bird

Coloured in with "strong shades" of pencils from Derwent. 

Cut down and mounted onto various snippets of card stock.

Edged with watercolour paint and mat and layered onto a blue snippet of background paper.

Added a sentiment and a "gem" flower. 

I hope you like it 

Think bubble wrap will be the new thing for me to use. 

Thanks Darenll. 

Have a good day.
