Hi friends. Today and I have a card I made with a great hummingbird digital image. I actually did a series of three cards with this very same image to see how many looks I could get with the same image. I’m sharing one here today and the others will be up on during the next week.
I just LOVE hummingbirds. I have two feeders. One is right outside the RRR office and they visit often. They appear to like overcast or even rainy days better than hot sunny days. Did you know they make a cute little chirpy noise? They will often hover in front of my window looking in, as if they like to watch me as much as I like to watch them.
I think my favorite bow is the double-layered bow made on my Bow-it-All Tool. Sure, a triple-layer bow is really great too, but the size of the double-layers seems to be perfect for my cards. With the increased size options on the new V2 model, you can make the perfect size bow for any card. This bow is made with 5/8″ Maize Satin with Grosgrain Edge.
I tried to go for a little dimension on this card and I took an extra printout of the image and fussy-cut the hummingbird out. I flipped it over and ran the ball of my large stylus over the back to give the body a rounded shape. Then I attached it with some pop-dots.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Stop back during the week to see the other two card versions using this very same image.

Oh Bonnie I just adore this card I love humming birds as well I watched a documentary once about them they are amazing they said the best place to go to see many different species and large numbers is New Mexico. I live in AZ and have seen many I have even seen a few resting on a branch and have had the honor to see a few nests the eggs are so tiny. Back to your card I love the added dimension with the wing and how you fanned the tail I also agree that the double bow is perfect I can't wait to see your other cards!
