Time to Nest

Hi, it's Gini, and I'm excited to share my first blog post with you today on the Technique Junkies blog!  I love trying new techniques and of course, adore beautiful stamps - so this is the perfect place for me.

I used two different stamps for my background - Burlap Flowers and Fat Smudged Lines.  I had fun with some embossing techniques, including a variation of the Outlined Resist Tutorial from the Bodacious Background Stamps CD.  

My focal image, Nesting Bird, was colored with Spectrum Aqua markers.  I then cut the image and used foam adhesive to apply it to the card.

The sentiment is from the very fun Mae West Sentiments (from the Palettini Collection).

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a bright and beautiful day.

Welcome to the team Gini. Your card is so spring-like. The bg turned out lovely. Your colouring is so good I thought it was a precoloured image. Very pretty.

Wowzer - love the background and the way that the images pops off the card. The delicate leaves are a perfect addition to thi stamped image. I really love the blue eggs with spots -Very natural looking.
