KS Monday–Thinking Of You Hummingbird



Hello and happy Monday everyone~

It’s been quite hot here in Texas and swimming in a pool was one thing my kids did during the weekend! It is also a time for hummingbirds to buzzing around my yard :) 

I decided to ink a hummingbird from Multi Step Hummingbirds with Multi Step Hibiscus for today’s Kitchen Sink Monday. I love the combination of those images…always make me think a beautiful summer!


The image was stamped with these steps:
Hummingbird: 4th – VersaFine imperial purple, 3rd – Memento cottage ivy, 2nd – Memento bamboo leaves, and 1st – Memento pear tart (1 x stamp off)

Hibiscus: 3rd – Memento rhubarb stalk, 2nd – Memento potter’s clay (1 x stamp off), 1st – Memento tangelo (1 x stamp off), 4th – Memento rich cocoa, and 5th – imperial purple

Leaves : 3rd – cottage ivy, 2nd – bamboo leaves and 1st – Memento new sprout


I added some shadow with Copic markers (C03, 01, 00). You need to check what Maria showed HERE if you haven’t seen yet! Memento ink works wonderfully for Copic markers and I had no problem with adding the details like shadows. I sponged the background with Memento danube blue. It’s bright blue and I needed to put off some ink before applying on the mat but it gives more brighter blue sky than Memento summer sky blue. After stamping the sentiment on the strip, I embellished the card with the sheer ribbon with button and rhinestones to finish off.
