Robin's Eggs.....

Hello everyone: I had a chance to go to do a bit of shopping last Friday for some much needed card stock, ink and card bases and, before I leave the store, I always go and check the CLEARANCE secction, I've found some real bargains there for very little money and this time, was no exception. I found a stamp by Inkadinkado, the price was only $2.00 but the image was what caught my eye, here is my card. I'm linking it to the CASology challenge this week, with a CUE WORD "EGG".  There is only a little over a day left to enter this challenge, I already submitted THIS OTHER CARD but I thought this sweet nest deserved to get a chance too.


I think this image is just so sweet, everything in it shouts "SPRING" to me.  When the Robins start coming back that is a clear sign that Spring is coming, I love their beautiful blue eggs.
I stamped this image onto a piece of plain white card stock with Stazon gray ink, I didn't want very dark edges, and colored it with Prismacolor pencils, no baby oil this time, and then, I paper pierced around it with the retired SU Paper Piercing pack, I used the Labels Collection outline, that is all the embellishment I put on this card.
Here is a picture of the finished inside, the sentiment is from my stash and the butterfly is from the SU set called Best Thoughts, both stamped with Wisteria Wonder ink.


Here is the CASology Cue Card that inspired mine.


Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

    1. Thank you Lisa, after I finished coloring this image, I felt it needed something and the paper piercing was it, I didn't want to add ribbon or any other embellishment that will take away the attention from this sweet Robin's Nest.
