This has been one of my favorite challenges using one of Tim's techniques. It is an embossed technique that creates a resist. You can read about it here Tim Holtz Resist technique it is from the Twelve Tags of 2007. I first stamped the bird and foliage using the Snow Cap Dapper and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then for the background I used Dusty Concord and Broken China, topped with a spray of Silver Sugar Glimmer Mist.
I used the Walnut Stain distress ink to stamp the vine heart, the saying and the brown eggs. The saying & brown eggs are from a retired Stampin' UP! set.
I used a small piece of the floral paper from the Idealology Lost & Found paper stack to punch out 3 small eggs. I coated them with the glossy accents and applied Rainbow Sparkle glitter to them. I attached them with mini glue dots. On the brown stamped eggs I added Waterfall Stickles, thinly spread with my finger.
Below the bird I made a "nest" of pastel colored specialty knitters yarn. I glued the yarn down with more glossy accents and also added a small amount of the glitter to it. I also used the yarn for the tag tie at the top.
