Step 1

Stamp the floral image onto alcohol friendly card with Black Shadow Hybrid Ink. Begin with the lightest of the greens, 401.

Step 2

Next, use 412 and blend the two colours together.

Step 3

Add 416, the darkest colour. You may want to go between shades for seamless blending. The more saturated the card is the easier it will be to blend.

Step 4

Colour the centre florals with 401, 403, 405. Colour the outer florals with 405, 391, and 393.

Step 5

Use 413, 415, 417 for the sprig.

Step 6

Colour in the centres of your florals with 373, 374, 375 and use 477, 478, 461 for the centres of the outer florals.

Step 7

Cut die your floral image once the alcohol markers are completely dry.

Step 8

Stamp the hummingbird with Nuvo Black Shadow Hybrid Ink and colour with 392, 393, 401, 405, 410, 425, 247, 437, 433. Die cut once dry and set aside.

Step 9

Trim a piece of smooth 300gsm card 4 inches by 5.25 inches. Use Nuvo Hybrid Inks, starting with Royal Plum on the outside edge, followed by Spring Heather, Blue Mineral and working towards the centre with Borrowed Light. Blend colours until you are happy with the finish.

Step 10

Use your die cut pieces to find the perfect alignment for your sentiment before stamping. First stamp Wild, then & free as you want them as close together as possible.

Step 11

Cover your sentiment with a piece of scrap paper and splatter white acrylic ink over your inked panel with a small paintbrush. Allow to dry.

Step 12

Use foam pads to adhere your hummingbird and floral piece onto your inked panel.

Step 13

Adhere your panel onto an A2 card base. Add sequins to finish.
