To start my card I cut out the various pieces of cardstock for the hummingbird and frame.
I then added some depth to the pieces by sponging on some ink to the bird and flower pieces and added a bit of color to the bird's beak with a dark yellow marker. Using the black ink pen I emphasized the eye of the hummingbird (not shown in photo).
I cut a strip of foam adhesive tape, cut it into narrower strips, and adhered it in pieces to the back of the oval frame.
To make the background for my "picture," I cut an oval from the pale blue cardstock. You could use any oval die which would fit -- I used the double-stitched oval because it was close at hand. The stitches were not going to show, so it didn't really matter.
I then constructed my card using the die-cut pieces and stamped the sentiment. Here it is again.
