Hummingbird N Morning Glory Flowers Delightful Day Tag

Hello. I'm back with a gift tag that has been made for the Outlaws Monthly Progressive Challenge. This month's image has been made by Createful Hearts Digis and is called Hummingbird n Morning Glory Flowers. This is the Createful Hearts Blog.


I've coloured this image using my new Docrafts Artiste Watercolour Pens. I'm not sure if I completely like them or not yet. I had a few problems watering them down but I think that was due to the card not being watercolouring card. I used some shape dies to create a nice frame around the image. The sentiment is from a Clearly Besotted stamp set called Design A Tree. To finish it off I added  some ribbon, a premade satin rose and a premade matching bow.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

There are so many benefits to colouring whether your a child or a adult. In my experience it's a fun way to bond, share an experience and create lovely memories. Not only does it help them physically with hand eye coordination but mentally as well as it will help them be and think creatively in there own way and make them feel good and proud of what they have created.


I've coloured the image using pencils and I've embellished using flowers. The sentiment is a digital stamp created by Tracy Wray from Crafty Cats 957 Designs Digital Stamps. The frame around the image has been made with a stamp.



My daughters card has been coloured with felt tips pens. She created the card for her Auntie. She added all elements around the image and in the background. She has even drawn her very own picture inside of her and her Auntie. She did colour some flowers I cut out for her but she decided not to add them. She was very happy with her work and her Auntie loved it.

I hope that you can join in with the fun. Here is where you can find more Art By Barb images.
