As I mentioned I used the alcohol ink backgrounds I made previously and then stamped with a crackle stamp (the crackle stamp is from Stampa Rose which is no longer around but I believe that Above The Mark also has a crackle stamp) some gold Krylon leafing pen pumped out on some
acetate (When I say pumped out I press the tip down until I get about a dime size puddle of paint), next I used chalk ink around the edges of all the backgrounds. I then used some star punchinella (thanks Angela!) and more gold Krylon leafing on the blue background. I layered the bird nest label onto the blue background (you really can't tell now ) and then slit the nest and perched the girl image into the nest like she was sitting in it and then added a hat from a scrap of alcohol ink background. I then added more stamping and chalk inks by this time you couldn't tell she was sitting in the nest unless you knew...I happened to have a couple of small faux nests I had picked awhile back and I cut about 1/4 off of one of the nests and adhered it with some crystal lacquer then cut up some of the nest left and glued it inside to fill it up more. Next I cut the corners off using corner scissors and added the pieces cut to the outside corners. Next I added jewelry tags stamped with eggs then layered onto metal tag brads. I cut two 1/8" holes at the bottom and wove some faux twig vines through the holes. I sealed the piece using PYMII.
