Ultimate Metallic, Delicata, and Brilliance inks are used to create a beautiful hummer. Ombre-hued Kaleidacolor inks are used to create the frame and background.

Die-cut Foliage Frame.

Place Foliage frame over blue background to determine position for sentiment.
Stamp sentiment in the darkest color from the Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze ink pad. It is easiest to do this with the pad expanded to get just the end inked section of the Kaleidacolor pad.
Adhere layers of card together. The Foliage frame is adhered with thin dimensional foam adhesive. The upper and lower flowers are adhered with On Point Glue, and the middle flower to thin dimension foam adhesive. The hummingbird is adhered with thicker dimensional foam adhesive.
