Birthday Hummingbird

Here's a birthday card I made recently that uses the KSS Hibiscus stamp set along with an Inkadinkado Hummingbird image and a SU sentiment. I stamped the bird image with versafine onyx black, then embossed it with clear ep and colored it with Copics. I'm not really sure what color hummingbirds are, but perhaps I should have done it in shades of gray to look more realistic instead of trying to coordinate his color with the flower images? Ah well, he's a special little bird bringing special birthday greetings with this card!
Have a terrific Tuesday whatever you're doing!

Very pretty Carol, I like that hummingbird image...I just wish we would have had more sightings of the real bird this summer in our backyard...very few compared to last year...

Hi Carol! I LOVE the way you colored that humming bird! This is another stunning card you have made! And, you have taught me something...about the Versafine Black Onyx Ink and Clear embossing powder...I never have tried that one and I am going to now...In fact, I have an image that I am making for my best friend and when I post it (might be a while) I will certainly put kudos to you for your inspriation! TFS!!
