Hummingbird Garden - Mandy Herring

Hi again
I'm back with a project for Paper Rose Studios featuring the Hummingbird Garden stamp set.
 I wanted to create a bright and tropical look for this set of cards.
The hibiscus flowers are coloured with Copic Markers using rich and vibrant colours.
 I especially love how the reds on the flowers turned out.
For this card I have coloured and die cut all the stamped elements and layered them onto a background of blended distress oxide inks. 
The background colours are tumbled glass and broken china. 
I have heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder.
For this card I have stamped and masked the flowers to overlap them, I have then coloured the layered flowers with Copic markers. the sentiment " beautiful" and the hummingbird are die cut and layered onto the background.
For this card I have used a very old technique called mirror stamping.
To do this you stamp out the image onto a piece of acetate or a smooth surface, I have used an actual mirror stamping surface.
. You then take that stamped out image and you press that onto your paper like you would a normal stamp.
. This flips the image so now my hummingbird faces the other way.
