Fusion -- Sweet Orange Blossoms

Today, I have a card to share for the Fusion --Sweet Orange Blossoms Challenge:


I love this sweet image, and while I don't have any hummingbird stamps
in my stash, I decided to create a similar looking bird with my PTI Spring Woods stamp set.


I stamped my bird in PTI aqua mist, green parakeet, orange zest and soft stone.
For my branches, I used Altenew moon rock, PTI green parakeet and new leaf, orange zest
and terracotta tile (I did the rock and roll technique, using my MISTI.)


I stamped the sentiment (from PTI Winter Woods) in moon rock.
I ran a piece of aqua mist cardstock through my diecutting machine with my 
woodgrain impression plate and adhered it behind my white panel.

I'm also linking this card up to play along with
Anna Kossakovskaya's CASometry Challenge 2. Make 5.

Thanks for looking!
