Home Sweet Home

There is a challenge over at Robyn's Nest on IDIC and you get a free image to play with too, how cool is that ?

The image is the 3 birdies in the nest called I Tawt I Saw a Pooty Cat by Robyn's Fetish. I already had the pooty cat image from Digistreet coloured in but hadn't got round to using it so this seemed like the perfect card to pair them up.

The base paper is part of a large 12" sheet from My Minds Eye Penny Lane collection. It has a huge tree with owls that is the height of the paper and then a great big area of pale green spots which is what I had used it for. The tree was so big I didn't think I would ever use it but I had the idea to take the lower portion and slice around the branch so I could slot the nest into it. Jules, I have used another snippet !!

The little house from Chi Chi memories was also already coloured in and it seemed that as the card was evolving it made itself in a collage style so I added a chipboard sentiment and some sequin flowers under the tree and job done!!

All images were coloured in using Promarkers and a full list of digis is as below.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size - A5
Images - I Tawt I saw a Pooty Cat by Robyn's Fetish, Foxy Feline by Digistreet, Sweet Home by Chi Chi Memories
Sentiment - Colorbok chipboard from QVC
Paper - Penny Lane collection by My Minds Eye
Embellishments - Butterfly brad by Papermania & small brads by Queen & Co
Tools - Promarkers and lots of 3d foam
Techniques - Decoupage

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical order) :-
