Beate's WSC23 & Lindsey's Inka Contest


Hi there! I'm so excited Beate has a great sketch challenge this weekend you can see it here Lindsey has a Inkadinkado Card Contest going on you can see it here
With so much inspiration how could I pass these up? My stamp is made by Inkadinkado. I colored the hummingbird after I googled hummingbirds and saw one I liked, the one I saw had a black head and black tail but the body really was Old Olive and NQN. So I took it from there and this is what I came up with. I used chalk on Natural cardstock to color the image. The clouds are made using chalk and a cloud stencil.
Card Supplies
Stamps: Hummingbird ( Inkadinkado)
Paper: NQN,Natural White, BG Blush
Ink: Black
Accessories: Stampin Pastels
*ETA Here's a link to my coloring with pastels tutorial I made back in April

OMG. What an amazing coloring job Dee! This card is just gorgeous. (And totally clever of you to look at real photos of hummers to see the colros variations!)
