craftycreationschallenges

happy wednesday :) hope your week has been a good one so far. this week over at CCC claire is hosting our challenge the theme being magical.  our sponsor is stitchy bear stamps. we were gracioulsy sent a couple digi images to choose from  i decided to use this beautiful hummingbird image.be sure to pop on over to the CCCblog and check out what the rest of the DT has created.
 for the hummingbird  i cut it out then bent its wings slightly  i  used a little colorbox fluid chalk for coloring and added diamond stickles. the paper is memory box, i cut out one set of petals from the flower the h/bird is at  from another sheet of the same patterned paper and adhered it again slightly bending the petals. i used my cricut and jasmine cartridge for the corners and added kaiser kraft pearls. the sentiment is a SU stamp. thanks so much for taking the time here and as always your comments are so very much appreciated :) have a great rest of day :) xxxshelly
