Stacked Nesties
I drove my little electric car to Fort Meade today for a day of stamping fun! There were 21 stampers present at the SCS shoebox swap, which had been given a Christmas theme by our hostesses Amanda and Cindy. We were to wear Christmas sweaters and/or a hand-made Christmas-inspired name tag, but our cards didn’t have to be Christmas cards.

I found this Stacked Nesties technique in the October/November 2011 edition of the Technique Junkie Newsletter and thought it would be fun to find a nice combination of Labels Nestabilities for my swap card today. The card was really very simple and fast to put together – perfect for a shoebox swap! To create the background, I placed the inked Musical Score stamp rubber side up and rubbed my hand over the center of the card stock without going all the way to the edge of the paper for a more collagey look. The focal image was stamped with black ink and colored with various colors of ink and a blender pen.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I loved your card Vera. I love the bird image and always find it a challenge to use but loved the coloring you did.
