Gilded Hummingbirds Card

I can't believe we're nearly in June and I'm sat here in a thick fleece thinking about turning the heating back on.....again. It's so different to the lovely weather we had for the Bank Holiday weekend. Talking of June, if you haven't entered this month's challenge on the Clarity Stamp Challenge Blog you have until 8pm on Friday 31st May to have a go. It's well worth it as there's a £50 Claritystamp voucher for the winner, who is chosen at random. On Saturday there will be a new challenge and I will be sharing  the card I've made for that with you. Barbara Gray will be on Create and Craft so it should be a good weekend and if the weather is like this staying in crafting might be a good idea.

Meanwhile, this is another of my samples for the German shows.

It uses Barbara's technique of stamping onto a sheet of double sided adhesive and adhering gilding flakes and mica powders to it. I used gilding flakes for the background and birds, and Perfect Pearls for the moons. It's cut out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities die - Labels Eight. That is matted onto black card cut with Decorative Labels Eight.

The Leafy Columns are stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with black detail powder.

The card is made out of Centura Pearl card which gives it a lovely shimmer.
