B is for Bird

   
Hi

Today's card is made using a House Mouse stamp called Hummingbird Express


I coloured the image with Copic Markers and used some Shimmerz Paints to give the hummingbird a bit of pizazz.  I also added some Distress Stickles to the flower. 


I'm entering this card into the following challenges.

Stamp: House Mouse "Hummingbird Express"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope you like it.

Hugs

what a fabulous image! I didn't see the mouse in the first pic (I'm a bit tired tonight), but the second one shows him off really well. "Hummingbird Express" is such an appropriate title for that stamp. I imagine he's having fun, kind of like a ride at the fair. I like the papers and the colour combo, too.
