Hummingbird Stand Up

Hummingbird was a fast one and turned out good. Paper stuffed cat food can topped and bottomed with sugar box cardboard.

Cut to fit my junk mail flower remnant and then put on hummingbird so he looks like he's hovering like they do. Keeping with the flower theme dove into my pan of cardboard punches and found my yellow Domino sugar yellows for my petals and animal cracker red centers to frame my bird against a sky of metallic blue Acrylic.

As you can see round the can I used my patterned napkin that's almost all gone. Went on great but it wrinkled a little after it dried. Don'tcha just hate it when that happens?

My feet are plain match sticks. I debated all my paint colors and nothing felt good and just didn't feel like papering. Taking pics of my can feet look too huge so I don't photograph.

The back is my mix of brown and tan crushed seeds which went well with the light brown in my napkin and put a thin layer of glue to seal. Didn't show because don't know if people want to see bottoms.
