This is for today's SKETCH, Tuesday's COLOR, and Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS - Stacked Ribbon CHALLENGES. Panel 1 is my newly received Pretty petals background stamped in basic black on white CS. Then I inked it again using my SU Markers, huffed, stamped, and punch using the Mega Scallop Oval punch. I layered that on black Giga Scallop Oval to create the Spotlight effect. I applied stickles to one of the flowers. The hummingbird was stamped in black stazon then colored w/markers (should have used my prismacolor pencils instead but not alot of time this morning), popped up and the tip of his nose glued to the flower. I layered red on green on blue ribbon and attached the sentiment stamped in Night of Navy. Not sure I am happy with this one but here it is anyway.

I really like these colors on the hummingbird and he really pops against the background! Nice submission for a triple challenge!

What a gorgeous card! I was wondering how in the world I was going to make that sketch work, but you have made it work perfectly! Love the scalloped panels for the main image and I love that stamp! Beautiful focus on the oval image by coloring it and leaving the rest stamped in black!
