LOC NR Sneak Peek 2 - Love Nest

It is time for me to show you my next Sneak Peek of the Layers of Color New Release

It is exciting to see the new images on the Design Team Blogs - these girls have been busy creating and are excited to be showing off the new cling and clear art stamps over this coming week in the build up to Release Day and the Blog Hop - you can scroll down for all of the details!

This cling art stamp is called Nestling - who doesn't love to see a birds nest - and one with eggs in it is special - it is illustrated by the very talented Owner and Artist Laura Kirste Campbell - you will be seeing more during the week.... The pair of birds is a digi I have printed from The Graphic Fairy - I am trying to do a little bit more Mixed Media - as you can see, I am easing my way in!  LOL!

There is more than one set on this card - those of you who know me, know I LOVE to mix the sets when creating - this gorgeous flower is from the Artful Endearments art stamp set and is once again illustrated by Laura.

On more little peek and this time from the Gifts of Love art stamp set - this is illustrated by Nina Brackett and as you would expect is divine!!

The Nestling cling art stamp image is a good size and fabulous to colour - it is also perfect for scrapbooking!  The circle is cut with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the Standard Circles Nestibilitie.  I have sponged the circle before it comes out of the Nestibilitie.
