Today I'm showing a project with the Bless Your Nest Dies, which coordinates with the Bless Your Nest stamp set (one of my favs from this release). I already know these stamps/dies are going to be "go to" sets for me. With five sentiments to choose from, it makes it super versatile! For this project, I went with the All the Best in Your New Nest sentiment and made a card / gift bag for someone moving into a new home.
To create the silhouette, the branch was stamped with Tuxedo Black over the sponged background. A black Copic marker was used to color in the branch, leaves, nest and eggs (leaving some of the yellow to create highlights). It was a little tedious, but so worth it in the end!
