Challenge #177 at Glitter N Sparkle

Hi and welcome back.
I have finally got my Blog back after a long 2 months,
It was taken out of my hands (I think I was hacked)
along with all of my emails.
Luckily I noticed straight away and managed to get them blocked
until it had all been sorted out.

So now it is time to catch up on all of my Crafty Makes
that I have been unable to do .

Hope you enjoy looking at them all...

The Theme at
Things With Wings

My Project that
week was:-
Hummingbird Party Digi Stamp

To begin with I used a sheet of A4 Black Card

which I folded in half cut to make a Base Card
(14 x 21cm)

Next I printed the Image off 
on White DC Paper
And coloured the Image
 in using my Promarker Pens.
Pastel Beige
Lime Green
Meadow Green
Leaf Green
Bright Green
Fushia Pink
Warm Grey 1
Warm Grey 2
Warm Grey 3
Warm Grey 4
Warm Grey 5

Using the Large Rectangle Ornate Frame 

(XCU 503250 - X-Cut)
I Die-Cut out the Image so I could use it in the Center.
Then using Pearlised Neon Pink Card
I used the Ornate Frame Die again.

To make the Chests of the Hummingbirds glimmer,
I added Chameleon Flakes Glitter
(Glitter Magic)

For my finishing touches I added
2mm Light Green Rhinestones
which I placed in the little Holes in each of the Corners.
