For my project this month, I chose the NEW Humming Along stamp set. I stamped the hummingbird in StazOn Jet Black ink onto Watercolor Paper, and colored with ink refills, using an Aqua Painter. I'm by no means talented with watercolor, but I'm happy with how this turned out. I used the Gorgeous Grape and Coastal Cabana for the hummingbird body, and the Gorgeous Grape again to stamp the greeting, and also to stamp the flower in the background of the card base. The Cajun Craze was only used on the hummingbird's beak.

I added some sheen to the hummingbird once I was all finished playing around, using the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. I tried to catch it at an angle above, and I hope you can see it, because my camera battery died on me! I cut a teeny slit along the fold of the card to loop the Gorgeous Grape 1/4" Mini Striped Ribbon through, and tied it in a bow.
