Delicate Blossoms

Hello and thank you all for stopping by.  We have had three days in a row of sun. Of course the rain is not far off again.  I am busy getting my garden boxes ready for Spring.

I sponged the clouds using a cloud mask.  For the hummingbird I really went all out, I used watercolor pencils, then coated the bird  with Sakura 3D crystal lacquer and sprinkled on glitter.  I added a little mounting tape behind for dimension.
