Crate Label Inspiration



The Inspiration Challenge on SCS was to create a card based on a label from the Crate Label Museum. I chose Oatman's Blue Bird label and paper pieced this bird image, sponging around the bird's body to add some depth. I used DP from 2 different pads with the branch/flowers being part of the paper design. I hand cut the blue Nestie label. It's getting late and tomorrow will be a full day...good night and thanks for stopping by my blog...

STAMPS: Tiny Tags (SU), Craft Smart (Michael's)
PAPER: Frond DP by Memory Box; Nottinghill by 7Gypsies, GP white
INK: Memento Rich Cocoa
ACCESSORIES: Labels Two Nesties, CB, Tiny tag punch, Satin ribbon, Brads, Scallop border punch (SU), Sponge
