Love Nest

Theme Thursday's Challenge today is:


This week’s theme is “hearts”! Use this theme in your creation this week! Use collage images, photos, rubber stamps, fancy paper , embellishments or any other art supply to give your creation a ”heart” look. Add your art to your blog, then post a direct link under the comments! Please include a link to Theme Thursday on your blog! Have fun and make art!

I have these absolutely fabulous old post cards featuring different birds and their nests. So i decided to make a "Love Nest"

The post card is mounted on light green paper that I stamped script all over. The Heart is embossed onto a mixed color background paper and then i wrapped it with some fibber that reminds me of the texture of a birds nest. The word Love is embossed in the same powder as the heart. The small hearts in the upper and lower corner are meant to make the postcard look like a playing card.

I hope you enjoy and please stop by One Powerful Hour...the theme this week is Fashion.
