Hummingbirds

Aloha!

I've been coloring, adhering and cutting with one arm for months (and making a mess of things). It's 3 weeks post op wrist surgery. They had to cut off some of the bone and, meh, too gnarly to discuss.

It took me ten weeks to finish a simple project of 21 cards, moving as fast as a snail on double stick tape.

I stamped all the hummingbirds and then colored them with Copic markers. I fussy cut them out and put those aside (weeks ago).

Using the Spotlighting Technique I colored a circle of the flower image, then ran this layer through an embossing folder, some with embossed corners, and others with debossing. The insides have flowers & the envelopes have autumn-y leaves and sunflowers.
