Hummingbird with Texture Background

Hi there!  I am back with another designt team project for Craft-dee Bowz where anything goes with a handmade bow for the month of June!  Our wonderful sponsor is Imagine That Digi Stamps, so please take a minute and check them out!  I happen to love the stamps in the store and can't wait to grab some more!

For today's card I started with water color paper and blended distress oxides and heat set them thoroughly.  I then applied light weight molding paste over a stencil and let it dry. While those were drying I colored my digital stamps with copic markers and dug out a die cut that on online swapper  sent me a year ago in the mail.  I love happy mail!  I apologize, but I don't know the name of the die... bummer because I would like to purchase it.  I am super excited that it was cut from fun foam as it adds even more texture to my card!  I then used my handy Craft-dee Bowz tool to make this beautiful lace bow and then the pink bow. 

I did not add a sentiment as I don't have a recipient for it yet, but will add one when the time is right.  Do you ever do that?  Make cards in advanced and then wait for the perfect occasion to send it?  I do all the time!!!   Without further ado...

Products used: white/fuschia card stock, fun foam die cut, copic marker, spectrum noir sparkle pen, Celebrate it Aria white lace, pink 1/8th inch ribbon, Craft-dee Bowz Tool, Canson Xl Watercolor paper, Distress Oxide Inks tumbled glass/peacock feathers/mermaid lagoon, Golden light weight molding paste, Crafter's Companion Grunge Tree stencil, white Gelly Roll Pen, Imagine That-Fuschia and Hummingbird digital stamp
