Lilies and Hummingbirds


Lily and Hummer 2011

I made my card for a challenge at Color Creative Classroom, if you have never heard of it it is a forum for people that work with copic markers and they have a challenge that goes on about twice a month. Each time we have different Sponsors, all of our Sponsors are  wonderful. We even win prizes. This time our theme was FLOWERS and these challenges are not easy one. The girls the are in Color Creative Classroom are really fantastic artists. Our Sponsor for this FLOWER Challenge was Tiffany Doodles and she offered 10 free images to the winner of the challenge. WOW!!!! That is a lot of images. To my surprise last night I went on to check the cards and I found out the I WAS THE WINNER!!!! HONEST I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT!!! LADIES THEIR ARE SO MANY BEAUTIFUL CARDS ENTERED AND I WON…. YAHOO!!! THANK YOU.. THANK YOU… I CAN NOT SAY IT ENOUGH. I”M SO HAPPY… I’M DOING THE HAPPY DANCE.  I went over to Tiffany Doodles and picked out 10 beautiful images. She has some wonderful images in her store, I love her flowers and her birds are stunning.

Here is a side view, you can see that I made that card 3D. You also can see that I added the Stamen and Pistil, how I did that, I took wire and colored it black cut them in small pieces bend the ends a little and added Alieens Tacky glue a small amount on the ends and used black flower soft.

I did pull out my magazine Birds and Blooms and found a picture of a Hummer and it really matched up with the picture I found. Here is a closer look.

Oh Pat this is amazing! I love the gorgeous flowers.
I would like to invite you to the group Wax Fruit Company at Crafter's Digital Art Center. I say you are in Stef's group. Isn't she fun. I think you would like Arielle's too. I am not sure how to invite you from there.

This is absolutely stunning and breathtaking! The flowers are gorgeous and so real looking! The hummingbird is amazing! At first glance I thought it was printed out - but you did a spectacular job coloring the bird! Fabulous job!
