RU Nesting?

The 3rd day of stamp releases for Innovative Stamp Creations - Nesting. This line is simply exquisite, these images are ideal for those special occasions such as a new neighbor, a friend who is moving, to a new baby and how about a friend in need! Nowadays many of the stamps on this line are quite trendy and versatile, that you are able to create a very simple card to even an altered art item.

Me - I went for an altered item. I made a tag 2x4 with a House theme:

Side 1:

The house is from the stamp sheet and I embosses using Distress Embossing Powders (awesome texture). The roof is from the Dimensional Elements: Edges, the pot is a wooden half pot and the OPEN door knob was from my $1 Micheal's find earlier this month. The topper is a little wooden birdhouse that I colored with Distressed Inks and stamped the roof with another image from the Edges set.

Close Up of the Pot and Flower:

Side 2 (I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that nest):

The middle egg is a half of a wooden egg, the smaller eggs were stamped on grunge board. The butterfly is on grunge paper and the eggs were stamped on paper and popped up.

Close Up of the Eggs and Butterfly:

Here is a close up of the back of the topper house:

The small nest is an inchie Fragment.

This is just fantastic! I love everything about it. I am always so inspired when I visit your blog.

I just wanted to let you know that I used your Drunken Scotch technique on my project for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week and have provided a link on my blog for my readers to find your tutorial. It's a very cool technique and perfect for the sort of art we promote on the SSSS site. Hope to see you playing along with us this week!
