I made my postage stamps by stamping some of the leaves from the set onto some Very Vanilla card stock and punching out the bits I wanted with my 1" square punch. Next, the flowers were added and by using the tiny flower from Summer Silhouettes, I got a completely different look. A quick sponge round with a dauber and some Marina Mist ink and the stamps were ready to mount onto postage stamp shapes punched out of Naturals Ivory card stock.
The nectar from these flowers must be delicious because that gorgeous little humming bird from Bloomin' Marvellous looks very happy! You can see I've used my markers to add a little definition to the plants and the little bird.
Here's the sketch I was using today.

Everyone's back to school again now and the snow has turned to a treacherous ice. I've been amusing the neighbours by walking about like a heron in my efforts not to amuse them by slipping over and landing on the old derriere! Is it spring yet?!
I'll be back tomorrow with a fast idea for Three Minute Thursday. Hope to see you then!
