I popped into Mary's blog this am (http://www.cardztv.blogspot.com/) and when I saw this challenge I couldn't resist! I am so into Mary's projects & Sophie too! The challenge is 'All About Spring' Well to me, spring is all about Hummingbirds! I don't have but a couple of carts, but I did manage to squeek out the money to buy Lyrical Letters, because on CricutSearch I learned that it had a Hummingbird on it!
I used some hot pink stock I had from leftover school project & black construction paper. (I don't have any black stock) The patterned paper & solid stock, is Cricut I got as a bundle when I bought my tool set & spatula & Lyrical Letters from cricutmachine.com. I cut 3 hummers starting the darkest at 2 1/2" and making each layer after that 1/4" smaller. I accented the cut lines (Thanks again Mary) With a colored pencil. I hope to afford some chalks & Chalk inks soon, but it looks OK for now. I glued the layers with an offset to give it some depth, and added some foam dots to bring it up. The heart I added was an extra from my mailbox project. I used the font 'Curlz" and printed out the sentiment. OH and the black ribbon is from my Soy candle supplies.
Thanks for looking & Think SPRING!
