The gals at Stampendous sent me some of their new Color Fragments for this Blog Hop, which I used to create a 6"x6" card. I turned these little bits of pure color into egg shells in the nest below:
In the above card, I stamped the bird's nest from the Nest Egg Perfectly Clear Stamps twice and then cut it out with a combination of my craft knife & a pair of scissors. It took a l-o-n-g time, I'm not going to lie. I layered one nest over the other to create the well in the center.
Next I used both the solid and speckled egg stampes from the Nest Egg Perfectly Clear Stamps to create the eggs. I layered the speckled images over the sold images to create this robin's egg look. One of the eggs I cut in half to look like it had already hatched.
After arranging the eggs in the nest, I added Scotch Quickdry to the nest and then sprinkled on the Powder Blue Color Fragments to look like broken bits of shell. Once the next was complete, I added it to the front of my card & I LOVE IT!!! Here's a closer look at the nest itself:
