For My Project, I made a card with this absolutely adorable hummingbird image. This was actually a special request I had made to Angela, and being the Sweetheart she is, she drew this beautiful bird for me!!

I colored the image with Prismacolors and Gamsol, and then put a layer of my new Shimmerz on top of the colored pencil. I picked the background papers from the colors of the hummingbird. Added a few Cricut Cuts, and a little Stickles in the center of the flowers. I tried something new...Iembossed the center of the flowers and the petals, along with the leaf to give them some lift. I rubbed/embossed the edge of the wing and tail, and edge of the flower, causing then to lift and curl a bit.
