This is my version of a cardinal on a nest. I have never actually seen one on a nest but imagination is a great thing. :-) The 'nest' is twine that I glued together with Ranger Multi Matte Medium, I just laid it on top of itself over and over 'till I got the effect I wanted. The background is blended Ranger Distress inks (Fossilized Amber, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean) . I used an SSS stencil (Tiny Dots) and tinted embossing paste with the same colors and applied it to the front of the card. The bird is also from SSS, adhered with foam dots, and the branch is from Purple Onion by Stacey Yakula. The sentiment is SSS Painted Hello, that I cut four times and once with fun foam and adhered them together to give dimension. I really liked the way it came out.
