Looking for Spring?

Well this is a change isn`t it! I decided that this stamp needed to be used today. It was warm and rainy and it reminded me of Spring not Fall soooo out came this stamp from Impression Obsession and SU.
The two Bird stamps are from SU Spring Song. I absolutely love hummingbirds. They are simply beautiful and amazing so when this stamp set came out I had to have it. Coloring hummingbirds is so much fun. They have such a variety of colors and they appear to be almost a fantasy bird. Love them.

The Birdhouses are from the Impression Obsession and I love it. Again, there are lots of details and I had fun coloring them today. I used Prismacolored Pencils and OMS. Love the way you can shade with the pencils.
I put the whole thing together and put in in one of those fantastic $store shadow frames. The birds are cut out using an oval nestibility and the SU scalloped circle punch. I used dimensionals to give some depth to the images.

Guess I will be back to Christmas work again. I just had to make something with that Spring Birdhouses and had such fun.

Talk later.

This gorgeous card makes me wish it WAS spring! I love the clouds and the bright beautiful colours. My MIL would flip her lid for the hummingbird (her fave.) :O)
