Oh Hummingbird!

A color challenge was posted at Splitcoast today, I do not have any of the colors, so had to substitute.....  This is my make:

 I used Calypso Coral, Regal Rose and Certainly Celery Su inks.  I used mixed Media cardstock for this fun project.  I smooshed the ink on my craft mat- first Coral - spritzed then added to cardstock.  I dried the card, then repeated with the Rose ink.  Circle punches in 1", 1/2" and 1/4" were sponged in the Celery, then White Pigment ink by Gina K.  I stamped the flower in Rose, then added a fussy cut flower from a seperate piece of technique card. I added a spritz of water and used a paintbrush to mute the lines a touch just on the fussy cut flower image.
  The die cut by Gina Marie was cut twice from card, and from the negative- sponged the green onto the card base, then applied the white hummingbird.  I covered the hunmmer with Wink of Stella.
  The 'dessert' was woodgrain, so added a touch of that in the corner.

 I do not think I have Fall in my heart yet!!!  I have hummingbirds out of my window- they will be migrating soon!!!

 I thought this bird was playing dead, because the other is very territorial, but apparently, before migration, they drink LOTS of nectar and go into a deep sleep.......

This is normal, watching to make sure no one but me drinks of the nectar the Schmidts provide, except me!!!  LOL

Very pretty, I like the little woodgrain in the corner.

I just changed the hummingbird nectar today, but I haven’t seen any hummers in weeks. I will still put the feeder out at least for a few weeks in case any migrants come through. I do miss them, but they must do what they must! I have NEVER seen one hang upside down before! How interesting!

What a gorgeous card, I love all of the coral and that beautiful hummingbird die! Awesome photos too, it's so hard to take a picture of a hummingbird and these turned out great.
