Brayered Tempting Turquoise ink at an angle on a 3.5″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White card stock.
Brayered Not Quite Navy ink just in the top right hand corner of the card stock.
Colored directly on the stamp, Old Olive for the leaves and Soft Suede for the branch. Huffed on the stamp to moisten and then stamped it on the card stock.
Added a shadow on the bottom of the branch using a Chocolate Chip Marker.
Stamped the bird’s nest using Chocolate Chip ink on Crumb Cake card stock.
Colored the leaves with an Old Olive marker.
Punched the center of the nest out using a 3/4″ circle punch.
Sponged Chocolate Chip ink around the punch out center and the middle of the nest.
Glued the center of the nest on the card stock.
Used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the out side circle of the nest.
Stamped the eggs on Whisper White card stock using Tempting Turquoise ink. Cut them out and glued them inside the nest.
Stamped the sentiment using Chocolate Chip ink.
Using the new Large scallop Edgelit, cut the scallop out of Real Red card stock using the Big Shot machine. Love, love the edgelits! Super simple to use.
Added a 5.5″ x 11″ piece of Crumb Cake card stock, folded in 1/2 and a 5.25″ square piece of Summer Smooches DSP. Also added some Real Red Ribbon.
Here is the finished card measuring 5.5″ square.
May your day be filled with fun and laughter.
Until my next post. . . . . .
