Bird's Nest

Today STAMPlorations are kicking off a new Theme & Photo Prompt challenge!
You can link any makes, not just cards, as long as you include some stamping and follow either the theme or the photo inspiration (or both for even more of a challenge!)

I was inspired by one of my favourite ARTplorations stencils, the Retro Circles and used it with both standard gel medium and crackle medium on a vanilla tag to create a background.

I applied colour with Brushos in Moss green and Purple as well as some Rusty Car Infusion (Paper Artsy). The crackled circles trap the crystals and concentrate the colours whilst the standard gel medium creates an effective resist.

My focal point is a bird from the For the Birds stamp set stamped with Blue Versafine Clair on coloured paper. I placed in on a mat with wrapped "wool". Top left,  I added the other die-cut birds from the Matching For the Birds CUTplorations set and bottom right a sentiment from the same stamp set.

Your turn to create something with 3 colours or less and/or following our photo inspiration. There are prizes to be won... a $15 gift certificate to the winner and $10 to the runner up chosen by a DT member as well as a $5 gift certificate each to three randomly drawn players.
And don't forget, whenever  you shop for STAMPlorations products you can get 20% off with my code: STAMPGIRLCRAFTY

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the Craft Stamper and SSS Wednesday challenges.

  2. Very much in love with this tag, Christine - the colours are glorious - a touch of autumn rust and the soft melancholy of lavender. There is something so magical about the circles too. A real beauty.
