Birds Nest

Imogene sent me a few images of this stamp ( redlead artist trading card walking through the woods) to see what I'd do with it, this one was originally stamped in brown ink on cream cardstock so it has some distress inks ( ranger bundled sage & tumbled glass) color dusted along the edges and then I added just a bit of prisma pencil to the birds. this was die cut with an spellbinders label 17 die. the edges have some colorbox fluid chalk ink ( creamy brown of course) dragged along the edge. thought about matting it with a dark brown cardstock but, the next size up label is way too much for a slim layer. seen this sage speckletone colorbok scrap and thought oh that's nearly the same color as the distress inks combined, found this leafy background paper in the bin ( thinking its basic grey because its one sided but, it could also be webster's pages too (not sure anymore) the spellbinders heartfelt creations window die was done on a piece of shimmery die cuts with a view bronze-ish type paper, the sentiments from A Muse ( one of the old wood mounted style ones) the pearls, lace and mini brad are all from recollections. card base is textured bazzill, my fabulous mother in law made the crochet bloom. thinking that button is a "dress it up?" button ( had it for years don't remember anymore) the chocolate hemp string was found at walmart and *gasp* mine does not have it anymore.. ( and I'm almost out) the punchie along the bottom of the bird image panel is an martha stewart border one ( and they don't have names on the side) but, I haven't play with it before and it looked OK with the swirls peeking out from the window frame. the chocolate chip layer was cut with a spellbinders labels 20 die. the sentiment was done with an labels trio die. ( need to remember to suggest that to A Muse people... they need that die set in their catalog since so many of their sentiments fit on them) :)
