Hummingbird Bookmarks

I had so much fun creating these bookmarks and coloring them with my Spectrum Aqua markers. There are soooo many different ways to use these Aqua markers, with each method giving such different results in the final coloring. Love, love, love!!!! 🙂

The bookmark on the left was colored using a technique found HERE on the Spectrum Noir site. I inked up the stamp directly with the Spectrum Aqua markers, then stamped on watercolor paper and used a waterbrush to spread the color. After I was done coloring the stamp, I inked up the stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped the outline over the top, kind of giving it a hand-drawn/hand colored appearance.
