Today on SCS the featured stamper is Laura ODonnell I was inspired by this card she made with birds. Check her gallery out, it is full of inspiration!
I stamped Impression Obsessions Hang in There F8726 and Love You C8558 with TsukinekoVersafine Vintage Sepia and clear embossed it. We are all avid bird lovers at my house and I just love this image!!! I colored the clothespins with a Memento Desert Sand marker and lightly sponged the edges with Desert Sand and a tad of Memento Rich Cocoa while it was still in a Spellbinders Rectangle die. Added a little red heart that was sponged with Rich Cocoa. Popped up the image on a Spellbinders Rectangle. The Background is Impression Obsessions Cover-A-Card Music CC029 done the same way as the main image and added some piercing for some faux stitching and connected it with a Rich Cocoa marker. SCS's free For All Challenge is F4A122-Piercin' it . I punched a border with an EK Success Scalloped Scallop border punch and added some gorgeous pleated ribbon, lace, pin. I popped it up on a card base and decided it still needed something and added a Spellbinders Parisan Accent to crown the image and a rhinestone to the bow.
We have Tree Swallows that nest every year in our backyard. Sadly we had a storm and the Mama bird didn't make it through the storm, so these eggs were done for. I had to remove the eggs so the male could find another mate and nest in the same box~ Papa bird found another mate and is happily nesting again.
Thanks for stopping by and have a most fabulous day!!
