Mustard, burgundy and peach...

Hey everyone,

Just a quick one from me today. This card evolved into an interesting combination of colours. I can't say I've ever used mustard, burgundy and peach together before. I like it though! Funny what comes out when you're just going with the flow.

In the background I used my Hibiscus stencil. You can see it poking out here and there but it's mostly just texture back there.

The flowers in the front are my Sideways Hibiscus stamp (unmounted: Hibiscus). I stamped with Versafine ink and painted with acrylics.

The bird is Flying Hummingbird 2. I stamped on a separate sheet, coloured with markers and cut it out to add to the card. Side note: I'm making an unmounted Hummingbird sheet. Coming soon!!!

So much went into this I couldn't possibly explain it all. Still have video making in my mind. Just busy busy with everything else. Will try to get to making tutorials when I can.

Give Away

There's still a Give Away happening on my blog and the Paper Crafter's Library. I'm giving away a Hibiscus unmounted sheet of stamps and my Hibiscus stencil... The draws close this Tuesday night...
If you'd like to participate here are the links:
That's it for now! Thanks for popping by :)

  5. This is beautiful Ryn and love the colour combination which is so fresh and the hummingbird with the burgundy wing and tail feathers stands out really well and I love the seed beads you have used for the centres of the Hibiscus flowers too. x

  6. Your color combo is just stunning!!! And I love how you did the hummingbird, such inspiration here!!! Would love to see a hummingbird sheet, it would be nice to have the whole collection. GORGEOUS card!!!

  7. I look forward to your video tutorials...you achieve such depth of color and texture. It helps to know your steps...such as the hibiscus stencil peeking through...I missed that! Thank you so much for all you share and do!

  8. Wow, I have never used those colors either, but they work together so beautiful ! Absolutely stunning ! Greetings, Enny

  9. Wow, this is lovely Ryn and for you an unusual color combi, but very beautiful! Sometimes it's good to pick other colors! Love all the texture, xxMiranda

  10. I have been wondering why no-one in Europe is offering hummingbirds unmounted... but obviously it hasn't excisted! Looking forward to it :) love the colours, texture and little beads too!
