Hummingbird Wall Hanging

I had a great night out last night with the girls. This wall hanging is one of the fun projects that we did. Val demo'd this one and gave us a little lesson on the color wheel and what colors compliment each other. She also showed us a magazine that featured lots of beautiful Hummingbirds for us to gain some inspiration from to color our own hummingbirds in with our chalks. I had a lot of fun doing this project. I don't play with my chalks nearly enough. They really are so forgiving and fun to use. I'll have to bring them out of hiding! lol :) Thanks so much, Val! This was a great project! :)

Here's a close up of my hummingbird feeding at some petunias. I really like this image a lot. I even stamped off a few extra to play with later. :)
I need to finish the 2nd project and then I'll post it as well.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
