ETA: I forgot to say I hand drew that little nest, just a really fine tipped brown marker, and looking at the bigger nest from Birds of a Feather to follow the form.
I realize the photo is hard to see the little blue birds- it might do better if you click on it to enlarge it~
Sometimes I get a little sad when I see wonderful cards with products I don't have, can't have, can't afford, or whatever. I am sure others are in the same boat as me, and probably more often.
Today Nichole showed a perfect (for me!) card (here) but the products to make it aren't available until later next week, and then it's a 2 week wait for them to arrive... and that is if they make it onto my ever growing shopping list!
So I decided to head up to the stamp room and try and create the same 'feeling' card with the supplies I have~ Voila!
I used Through the Trees and Birds of a Feather stamp sets; Fine Linen and Spring Rain paper; plus Turning a New Leaf patterned paper cut with the smallest scallop die. Inks are Spring Rain, Chamomile, plus some Memento Rich Cocoa. I used the Woodgrain Impression plate just for some texture, and a dark brown paper twine instead of Nichole's Linen twine. I also added a bit of Fine Linen twill ribbon, for what reason I do not know...lol... but it looks ok to me!
