Garden Silhouette #600 (digital available)

I decided to use lovely Nesting Bird Stamp Set on my card. Image and sentiment are stamped with Tuxedo Black ink to the white cardstock and colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.

I pierced holes all around the edges and draw faux stitching with pensil.  For matting layers I used kraft cardstock. To add some intres I stamped Crackle Background with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Caramel EP. Edges of the kraft CS are inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink.

Have you tried Mega Tack Glue? This is a must have glue. I love to make my own glue dots with it. Best part is you can make them any size you need :) Watch the Video tutorial from Techniques and Tips. Glue dots part starts from 4th minutes. Bow is attached with self made glue dots.

This lovely branch is die cut from Sticker Paper. After removing the protective sheet I covered it with Luau Green Glitter. Butterflies are also die cut from Sticker Paper and covered with Bubble Gum Glitter.  Sticker Paper is colored with pink marker from behind to add deeper shade to the butterflies. Both butterflies are attached to a thin strips of acetate
