Picture Perfect Inkspiration- GDP075

Welcome back crafter's.

The project I am sharing today has been inspired by two creative challenges this week. One is a colour challenge from Colour Inkpisration's DT and the other is a theme from the Global Design Project's DT

#Pictureperfect #Hummingbird #Handmadecards #KOCreationscards #Australianmade #Eleganteggplant #Delightfuldijon #Crushedcurry #Whipserwhite #Inspiredbynature 

Here is the colour challenge from Colour INKspiration
In case you can't see the names from the image above:
Delightful Dijon, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White and Crushed Curry are the colours.

 This is the theme from GDP

For my project I used the Picture Perfect stamp set...I adore the hummingbird image  it's a fave of mine and does lend itself to the artsy look so very well.

Here is my card. For both challenges #GDP075 and #CI04

First I placed the stamp image where I wanted it to be. 
I then put a Layering Circle (2nd largest) over the top and drew inside the circle where it would meet the stamped image.
After putting the stamp to the side I ran it through the big shot leaving the pieces I didn't want to be cut over hanging from the sandwich boards.
 I added 1 drop of ink in Elegant Eggplant to a clear block and put 3 drops of water in each. I mixed together and drew the colour up inside the eyedropper. 
I spritzed the water colour paper lightly with water and then dropped colour where I wanted it. I then re spritzed with water to move it around. I repeated this process with the crushed curry.
I dried it off with the a heat tool. I spritzed water and then Whisper White over the top of the watercolouring.
I then started with the hummingbird image. 
First layer I used Crushed Curry, making sure to dry between layers.
Second layer is Delightful Dijon and lastly Elegant Eggplant...This looks almost black.
Once the image was completely dry I cut the circle arcs out and fussy cut around the bird.
I trimmed the watercolour paper to the size I wanted. I cut a piece of window sheet and glued it to the back of the image.
I added dimensionals to the back of my card front so that it would sit flat...I placed them in a solid line around the circle, to do this I cut along the edge of the dimensional sheet where they are all joined together. Remove the backs of the dimensionals ready for sticking.
Using the Rhinestones I placed them upside down on the window sheet and then put my Elegant Eggplant backing over the top. Line up before pressing firmly to adhere.
The sentiment is from the same set as the hummingbird and has been embossed using Whisper White.
