'Tis Tuesday!

Hi Friends!  Thought I would post something this morning, instead of in the afternoon.  I worked, it seemed like hours last night trying to improve my new site here, and s-l-o-w-l-y but surely I am improving it day by day.  There are still lots for me to learn!  My card for today is very simple, but it gets the message across.  It reminds me of my sweet mother, because she loves hummingbirds.  I took some textured gray card stock as my base.  I then stamped that beautiful hummingbird and embossed it.  I, then embossed with white embossing powder one of the flowers from the Fifth Ave. Floral stamp set from Stampin' Up! and then, with a spray bottle spritzed my flower with water.  It makes some pools onto the flower, and then I took two different colors of re-inker, and just lightly touched with a paintbrush ( or you could use an aqua painter if you have one) some of the reinker to the pools of water and let it spread through out the flower.  It looks like a "hot mess" at first, but once you let it dry, the wait and the effect is beautiful. I cut my flower out, and popped it up on some dimensionals.  I, then stamped my "thinking of you" greeting, and also embossed that as well.  This card is one of my favorites.  That is probably why I still have it and have kept it to enjoy for myself!  :o)  Thanks for stopping by friends!
