NEST EGG

WEDNESDAY STAMPER ask us to work with the theme of NEST this week.
I got a bit carried away!
 I don't think I've used so many stamps on one piece for a long time!! I used some old favs and even some I hadn't used before!


 The bird children and bird with dress are CATSLIFE PRESS.........the egg is from a download collage sheet.........

 ....the tree, chair, tags, word labels are CHARACTER CONSTRUCTIONS

 when I set out to make this I had in mind something to do with empty nest syndrome, wondering if birds suffer from it as well as us or if they are just glad when they go.........but it turned into a play on nest egg!!

Tis good to get carried away!!
What a beautiful piece of artwork. Love the little squirrel & ooooh the background colours are perfect!
Looks like this was great fun to make :)

I am dreading an empty nest!! but I suppose it'll have a bittersweet feeling as I will finally have my own craft room!

I saw a book the other day & thought of you.. & can I find it again!! Have a great day.xx

You did get carried away, didn't you? But it's all gorgeous. I do worry about your mind at times, though, lol. Good link - thinking outside the box!
