Bird's Nest

Hello! Well, I am in just one of those non-crafty moods but need to sit down and get some work done. Don't you hate that? I went out of town this weekend and came home with another bit of a cold. Or something. Been fighting it with tea, honey, water, Vitamin C...etc....ugh!!

Quick post so I can get on up to the craft room and see what I can get done.

I used the new Bird Song set from Sparkle N Sprinkle to make this card. I used a Stampin' Up Quilt embossing folder for the green background. Inked up the edges with Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) and than distressed. I used Distress Markers (Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Vintage Photo) to color in the bird's nest and the row of eggs. For the eggs though, I added the colors directly onto the stamp and then stamped onto Kraft paper. I added a bit of a sparkly border above the eggs with Peruvian Lily Velvet glitter. Full instructions can be found here
