Hello, everyone! Happy Monday to you! I have another nature-inspired card today after a weekend spent mostly outdoors. I’ve been trying to restore certain areas of the garden that have been ravaged by deer, Wally’s puppyhood, and various construction projects. The last two summers have been very rough on the garden and it bears little resemblance to the beautiful oasis in the photos I’ve shared in the past. Progress is slow as I’m honestly not feeling the love for the back-breaking labor these days. I’d just as soon be walking with Wally or relaxing on the deck. . . sigh. . . But I digress. . .
I’ve used an Impression Obsession set from Stamper’s Dream called Home Sweet Nest. Both birds are cut out and glued over the nest. All coloring was done with Copic markers, and the image panel edges were distressed and sponged with caramel ink. The set includes a square of bird-related script, and I stamped that repeatedly down the border on the right. I made a simple color block layout with BasicGrey Origins designer papers, and embellished only with the two copper brads. I had intended to tie some burlap string around the lower edge of the image panel, but I glued the panel in place and then realized my “oops”.
