I chose a wood grained patterned paper from FabScraps that compliment the colors well. I cut some vertical slits in the paper and placed it upon a piece of 12×12 corrugated cardboard that has been stripped away from its top layer. I marked the spots where the slits were and removed the patterned paper for the moment. I sprayed over those areas on the corrugated cardboard using Cowabunga Copper Starburst Spray and then adhered the patterned paper over the cardboard. I pulled back the paper in those spots, adhered the paper then touched the edges with the same spray. I did some tear outs on the outside edges of the entire layout, and did some more spraying with Cowabunga Copper and Ocean Breeze Blue Flat Fabios Spray.
Here is closer view of the nest.
For the die cut frame, I inked it with a dark color then heat embossed it with Desert Moon Copper Teal Embossing powder. Then I went over it in spots with Silver Moon Mistletoe Embossing powder. The bottom layer of the frame was primed with white gesso and sprayed with Ocean Breeze Blue and toned down with bit of Gag Me With Spoon Gray. The die cut Sizzix leaves were also heat embossed with Cleoatra’s Copper then spayed with Gag Me With Spoon Gray.
