bloghopbannerapril2018-001

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you showcasing exclusive, free products you can earn with qualifying orders. You may have arrived from Nancy’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I paired the Touch of Ink Sale-a-bration stamp set with the Forever Flowers pattern paper from the annual catalog.

I used a modified Rock n Roll technique to color the hummingbird. Ink the image in Crumb Cake. Then Rock n Roll Shaded Spruce on the belly and Night of Navy on the wings. Yep, ink is transferred to the acrylic block. Just wipe with a tissue to keep your fingers clean.
