The Hummingbirds

For my first project as a member of the new Digit DT team, I wanted to have a play with one of Ching Chou Kuik's gorgeous images. I love her artwork and I'm so pleased that I can now buy them in digi format to download and use immediately - instant gratification stash shopping! :)
I chose to work with Ching Chou's The Hummingbird's image:
I coloured the image in (using Promarkers) in lovely bright, vibrant colours and I wanted to make a bright, vibrant card to match. One of the things I love about digi stamps is the option to resize them. For this card I wanted to echo elements of the image on the front of the gatefold card so I printed out some parts of the image - the hummingbirds and the flowers - in a larger size and cut them out.
You can get this beautiful stamp in both red rubber (either as a single image or as part of Plate 226) and digi formats.
