CHF07 - Animals

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for stopping in today because it's time for the next Cornish Heritage Farms challenge.The theme is animals and I decided to use a digital bird image I have in my digital stash. I really love birds. I also really like trees and where do you see birds, but in trees.

As I looked at the bird I envisioned it sitting in a nest on a tree limb, so I drew the tree with an overhanging limb.

To make the tree I penciled in the sketch of the tree on the cardstock. Next, I cut the cardstock and embossed it and added a cream colored ink to bring out the embossed wood design. Next I used a die to cut the leaves. The nest, I made from a small branch punch and used about 25 pieces.

This beautiful bird is a great digital image of a robin.  Check out all the digital images, there are so many to choose from and you don't have to wait for the postman.The sentiment is in the Ornamental Beauty set
