A Little Bird Told Me

I recently bought this set from The Cat's Pajamas.  I love birds and nests. I really like the sayings that came with this set.  I knew that is would be perfect for the challenge at Sketch Saturday Week #292.

I love the combination of tan/kraft/brown and red.  No, you don't have blurry vision, nor is the pic out of focus.  I stamped the nest in Hero Arts Cup o' Joe and then again in Chocolate Chip by Stampin Up.  The bird stamps are textured.  I stamped it in Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red.  And the eggs are pearls.  I used distressed ink around the edges.  The background Chevron is a stencil from Heidi Swapp that I sponges Hero Arts Cup o'Joe.  It was easy to do and it turned out so nice.

 I am getting a small stash of stencils together for this online class (STENCILED) that I just signed up for last night.  I was contemplating on whether to take the class because of my work schedule.  I happen to be working that weekend.  I decided to go for it.  Looking forward to using that embossing paste that I see so much about.  Anyway, it has a couple of my favorite teachers (Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner) and some new ones I don't know as well.  I hope you can join me!  It'll be fun!

Thanks for stopping by!   Traci
