Nesting Bird

Today I'd like to share with you a spring card made with embossing paste, embossing powder and glitter accents. Anne Temple made a very good tutorial about Embossing Paste and Embossing Powders Technique.

For the background I used Dreamweaver Chevron Background Stencil and White Embossing Paste. While embossing paste was still wet, I covered it with Spring Willow Embossing Powder. I let the paste to dry and after that I heated it with heat tool to melt the embossing powder.

This lovely image is from Nesting Bird Stamp Set #602. It is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Promarkers. I added strip of cardstock which was heat embossed with Spring Willow embossing powder.

Rocks was covered with Dimensional Glue. It dries clear and will keep the dimension. I also added Dimensional Glue to the Silver Flower and covered the glue with Bronze Splendor glitter.
I used Aleene's Take It Over and Over glue to make my glitter dots. For that I added dots of glue to the leftover backing sheet from 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" and added Bronze Splendor glitter on top. After glue was dry, I picked glitter dots with x-acto knive, placed them to the card and added Dimensional Glue on top.

I also used  white Crocheted Lace Ribbon and Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh to embellish my  card. Narrow brown strip on the side of chevron layer is made with cardstock, 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Bronze Splendor glitter.
