Hummingbird Thankyou

For someone who never made 6 x 6 cards, I've made quite a few in the last month. I bought this hummingbird stamp before I left for vacation and left it in the middle of my stamp table. This morning before work I decided I'd better put ink to rubber and make a card with it. I knew the colors I wanted to use for the bird, but didn't have any patterned paper to go with it. I used my SU reinkers and alcohol and made my own paper. I hope you like it! There is an awful lot going on, but I think it works. Your commnents are appreciated.

RECIPE:
Stamps: Inkadinkadoo "Hummingbird", SU Warmest Regards, SU Baroque Motifs
Ink: Night of Navy, Versamark
Paper: WW, Taken with Teal, Green Galore, Night of Navy, Glossy White
Accessories: SU Reinkers - Night of Navy, Green Galore, Tempting Turq and Silver, Alcohol, Brads, Ribbon, White EP, Piercing tool

This card is absolutely stunning!! Would you mind sharing how you used the reinkers and alcohol?? I have wanted to try regular reinkers and alcohol, instead of the alcohol inks. Thank you! Terry

I think it works, too! I love the alcohol-ink paper you made to match your colors...they're perfect for the hummingbird! Ever wonder why we leave these fab stamps just sitting around uninked and unloved? Never enough stamping time for me :)
