Fantasy Zum Zum

 A neighbor printed out this image for me to color in honor of the many Hummingbirds here.  We estimate 165 Zum Zums [the name for hummingbirds in some South American countries - isn't that descriptive??] or more in the summer.  In the winter the number drops to around 50.  We make the sugar solution and fill up to 9 quart feeders everyday in the summer.
I colored the image with Copics [BV11, 13, 17 BG45, 49 ] and then used a Uniball Signo white pigment gel pen for the dots and wink of Stella to create sheen on his throat.  The vine is from a Martha S. punch and the flowers are from a Hanko punch with a light blue jewel for the centers.  
The "Hello" stamp is from SU.  
I used this card as a Thank you for my brother and his wife.
