Nouveau Bird Inspiration


I made this card for today's inspiration challenge over at SCS. I chose this inspiration piece and used a combination of DSP prints to create a patchwork background. I added faux stitching using a Basic Black marker. The main image is from A Touch of Nature and was stamped on Saraha Sand twice. I punched one out with the 1 3/4" circle punch and then cut the other image out with my SU paper snips (seriously the BEST scissors for fine cutting!!!). I layered the circle on Whisper White and then layered the cut-out image on top with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from SU's Wow Flowers set and punched out with a 1" circle punch then layered onto Sage Shadow and Basic Black circles. I fixed a filigree flower with a black brad through the centre. I added a ribbon bow with the GORGEOUS black striped ribbon and added a Basic Black button and linen thread.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: A Touch of Nature, Wow Flowers
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Nouveau Chic DSP, Tea Party DSP, Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Whisper White, Sage Shadow
Accessories: Black brads, linen thread, black button, black striped ribbon, filigree brads, circle punches, basic black marker

Thanks for stopping by!
