Ghostly humming bird

I've been playing around with Versamark resist, a technique I've not used for  ages, and Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud Blending Ink which gives a very subtle, almost ghostly, image. I thought the effect perfect for a humming bird, as they appear so briefly before fluttering away that you often think you just imagined them.

I chose one of my boldest flower stamps and coloured it with brightly coloured Promarkers,  partly to contrast strongly with the ethereal humming bird image and partly to give the bright, brash look of the kind of tropical flowers a humming bird would be drawn to.

I am sharing this with
