Oakwood – Faith

This is a lovely stamp set by Stampendous.

Bird Collage contains six stamps and four coordinating dies. It is suitable for any occasion and whilst I started out with this being a Christmas card it ended up being suitable for other occasions too!

I stamped the bird image three times and heat embossed the two patterned paper ones. I wanted to create a red breast so I cut away part of the breast so that you could see the red. I then fussy cut part of the wings to create another layer. Separated by 3d pads the bird has three layers.

The nest stamp is stamped directly onto white card, and then heat embossed before colouring in. The eggs were stamped onto patterned paper. So very little colouring with this card, but lots of paper piecing.

Used Distress Oxides to give a slight blue and green colour top and bottom before layering it all.

Added twine aroudn the top layer and added the Faith sticker sentiment.
