*boy oh boy!* - sneak peek!

When I sat down to make this card, I really wanted to create something with a simple and natural feel to it. The new Tweets set was just made for this style! I took the branch, nest, and bird images and created a background using creamy carmel ink to stamp the images and sponge the edges. I stamped another nest and colored it in with copic markers. It became the focal point. I tied a bow with linen thread, and it worked perfectly for the simple, natural style I was going for. Then I added the "boy oh boy!" sentiment to turn it into a baby card. You could easily swap out the "boy oh boy!" sentiment for the "new nest" sentiment, and give this card to someone who has just moved into a new home. The new sets are available tomorrow... and you're gonna want 'em all!
