happy hummingbirdsEvening everyone!  We have a nice sunny evening here in Norfolk… so nice after all the recent rain.  Today’s creation is playing with Memento inks onto glossy cardstock.

I started by applying colour directly from the Memento inks onto my cardstock – use a tissue to blend a little.  I’ve used a mix of blues and yellows to create this background

Next I have stamped with Archival Potting Soil using the Crafty Individuals Hummingbirds Collage stamp.

Once the ink was dry, I picked out some highlights with a white gel pen and added a simple line border.

I will be placing an order shortly with Crafty Individuals – so if there is any stamps that you would like me to get in stock – do let me know!  You can view the whole of their fabulous range here.

Is there anything  you would like to see on my blog?  Would you like to challenge me with a theme, topic, technique or product range?  I am happy to have requests and suggestions and I’m starting to plan my next video too – so if you have any requests for it’s topic.. just email me on aldridgecrafts@googlemail.com or send me a message on our facebook page (link at the top).
