Drawn From Nature



I was thrilled to play along in today's Featured Stamper challenge over at SCS. I decided to make a hanging cone using some of the great TJ Designs stamps that can be found at http://www.tweetyjill.com/ . I used "Songbirds" and "Design Elements" to create the stamped images for my cone. I also used the collage and scrapbook papers from TJ Designs as well.

I really loved the fern image paper because it worked so well with the "drawn from nature" stamp that I used. I wanted to take a picture of it hanging in my house, but it is overcast and raining, so I didn't have a lot of good light to use...so...imagine the key hanging down from the bottom rather than laying flat! LOL! I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch to punch out the butterflies. I used more of the collage and scrapbook papers and added a Kaiser self adhesive pearl to the middle. I added a few buttons, lace and ribbon for embellishments. I had a lot of fun making this. Thanks for fluttering by!
