Nesting Time


I made this card inspired by the challenge at Pinspirational Challenges.

Here is the Challenge's Pinterest photo:

I kept my colour scheme the same, using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and Crushed Olive distress inks and a blending tool to create a backdrop for my collage. This was matted onto gold card.

The birds are beautiful images from a set of four postcards called Sweet Songbirds at Ephemera's Vintage Garden. I fussy cut around the birds, inked the edges and mounted them on foam pads to give dimension.

Cream cotton lace was placed along the bottom of the mat and from there a cluster of inked, die cut, vellum leaves, natural fibres and brown pearl stamen were attached. I also found some dried seed pods and glued these onto the leaves.

A small glitter tag was inked and added to the foliage cluster.

A tiny gold coloured butterfly charm was added to the lace.

I decided to punch the edge of the kraft card using a flower border punch. I used green patterned design paper, called Wildflower, as a background, inked the edges in Vintage Photo and mounted the matted image on foam pads. 

The patterned paper was also used to line the inside of the card, so that it showed through the border punched pattern.


The banners on the inside were die cut using the smallest Pierced Banner from Cheery Lynn.
