Thoughts of Spring...Nesting...

Morning all,
Hope your week is going ok.
Well it's my Thursday slot again and I've used a lovely stamp set from 
Hobby Art called Nesting, it's a four stamp set.
I wanted to create a nesting theme and, I chose to compliment it with a
 New two die set from Marianne Creatables called Anja's Vintage Frame. (30% off in the


I cut the main outer frame and two of the Lattice inners from smooth stamping card.
The Lattice inner reminded me of a trellis which is where the idea generated for this design.


I stamped the main image of the birds with the nest onto the main die cut frame using 
I coloured the image using alcohol based markers but equally
Watercolour pencils would look great.

To the trellis work I added some scraps of hessian and cheesecloth.
The hessian I glued behind the trellis and I threaded some small pieces of cheesecloth and hessian threads through the holes to resemble nesting material.
A few Pink Mulberry Flowers finished off these trellis pieces.


I Glued the trellis pieces flat on to a piece of Kraft card and layered the center image with
Foam pads before mounting the whole thing on to a homemade card blank.

 That's it, I hope you like it and thank you for popping by today.
