This is for the Ways To Use It Challenge Ė For the Birds. I choose to use a retired SU! set with a beautiful hummingbird that hasnít seen ink in a long time. I like to pull out my retired sets and use them. I have a lot! For this bird, I tried the Magic Snowflake technique for the first time. Although, I did like how the hummingbird turned out, I didnít like the surrounding area. So, I cut out the bird by itself. Itís a fascinating technique and I would to try it again. I took a peak in the gallery for inspiration, as I havenít used this set in a long time.
Iíve used retired stamps and even a retired color, Orchid Opulence. I have lots of paper in this color and I need to use it now & again. I thought it might look nice with this hummingbird. Fun challenge! TFL
