The Hummingbird Sprite
This precious Hummingbird Sprite was created by Mitzi Sato Wiuff (Aurora Wings) and is colored in prismacolor pencils and painted in some areas with Ken Oliver's Liquid Metallic watercolors. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Thoughts and Prayers stampset (2). It is embossed with copper embossing powder. The card front mat is created in Photoshop in autumn colors and topped with a black mat for the artpiece. One tiny metallic heart is on the Fuschia's petals. The eye and beak of the hummer is glaze pen and touched with posca white. I considered creating a watercolor wash background but decided I wanted the focus to remain on the shimmer of the metallic watercolors.
This gorgeous sprite is done again with Ken Oliver's Liquid Metallic watercolors worked in the corals and purples and prismacolor pencils. The sentiments are from Gina K and Stampin Up (Million to One). The colors are SU Watermelon Wonder and Rich Razzleberry which is edged in gold rimmed enameled scallops (Pop Ups Etc stickers). and the card Design is a portrait orientation modified z-fold card. with inside areas for photos or messages on two faces.
