Wings is the theme for this week's One Layer challenge  over at Less is More and, as I had spent quite a lot of money in the Clarity Stamp sale last weekend, I though that I could take this opportunity to justify my splurge. (not withstanding that I  have a number of stamps that would have suited without my recent purchases)

I have wanted this hummingbirds stamp for a while and I just couldn't resist the half price tag. 

I have used IndigloBlu Flitterglu and Morris Dance Mega Flakes to produce the image.  I love this technique. I am always amazed at the detail achieved.  The shimmer produced has not been picked up with the camera.  I will try again.

Having watched Barbara Gray yesterday on Create and Craft, I was inspired to get out the brayer and Splodge Mat.  I cut a square mask slightly smaller than the 15cm by 15cm card so that I could create a border.  I edged this with a gold pen to give definition.

The sentiment was stamped using Dew Drop Brilliance inkpad. (Lightning Black)
