My second piece.....

.....for the challenge over at Country View Crafts where the theme is 'New Beginnings'. So if you saw my first piece you'll know that I decided to use quotes that went with the theme.....when I read this I thought it summed up the challenges that a new beginning brings, the learning of new things, taking that first step and then as it says taking flight.......
Started off by colouring up a tag with Wild Honey, Brushed Corduroy and Pumice Stone distress inks, then stamped some wood texture on using a Kaisercraft stamp. Then I stamped the bird and the eggs (Invoke Arts) used a damp paintbrush to lift a little of the colour off the surface of the tag to lighten the breast of the bird and the eggs. Stamped the words, cut them out and glued them in place. Then embellished it with a little greenery cut with the Spring Greenery die.

Thanks for popping by
