Spring is on the way


I found both these stamps at half-off at Hobby Lobby in January.  Just now playing with them.  I stamped the bird and branch, cut the nesties shape to frame it, and sponged tumbled glass around the edges.  Then I colored it with watercolor pencils.  The nest was stamped separately, colored, and cut out.  Then I cut out around the bird and branches enough to fit the nest on the branch.  This resulting image is a lovely sign of spring for me.

supplies:  pink card, white cardstock, Stampabilities KR1061 Cherry Blossom Bird, Inkadinkado 97104 (nest), Hero Arts CLCL267 Card Messages,  versafine onyx black ink, Prisma watercolor pencils, Nesties Labels Eight, tumbled glass distress ink

  4. It's been much warmer here in Minnesota this week. . .in the mid 40's. What a relief after all those below zero days! We should be back to colder temps over the weekend with a possibility of snow, but your card reminds me that Spring really is on the way! Such a pretty card, Lin!
