I stamped the image onto a piece of Watercolour paper using my Stamping Platform to ensure that the lines would be evenly stamped. Before removing it from the platform, I took a sentiment from an old Hero Arts stamp set and added that along the bottom right. After letting the ink dry completely, I commenced colouring.
Because a friend of mine introduced me to Prismacolors and Gamsol, I decided to use that colouring technique. I loved the versatility of blending several colours together for my Hummingbird. The House-Mouse was easy enough, as was the flower, but that brilliantly coloured bird was my challenge.
When I had finally achieved the look for which I was striving, I added some clear Wink of Stella to the jewel-tones of the feathers and was done.
I can see myself enjoying many more hours, playing with this image.
