Magical Monday - Moss Topped Birdhouse


Have you been over to TMITA/PCC to check out Nina's blog for this weeks challenge? I think you'll enjoy this one because you get to choose any one of Nina's images that you've collected or bought to feature in your project.

The lovely Olga is 'hostess with the mostess' this week and she has given us a recipe to work with as follows:

Take one PCC image of your choice add two ribbons along with 3 buttons and see what you come up with.


I picked this little image from Nina called Moss Topped Birdhouse which I printed and coloured with my Copic markers. Cut with a spellbinder oval die and matted to some Apple green card before punching either side with a SU slot punch.

The base card is Apple Green and I stamped a little bird image from Heidi Grace across the top using Versa Mark ink. Next I layered some chocolate and Tangerine Tango card that had one edge punched using a Fiskars Upper Crest punch. I pierced around the remaining three sides of the top card and added three green buttons with fine satin ribbon.

The focal image has been attached to the main card with the aid of two lengths of another ribbon threaded through the single slots and secured under the double border.

The sentiment is stamped in Memento black ink and is for a set called Wreath of Wishes from GKD.

Hope you have time to play along this week, I'll enjoy seeing which images you pick to play with. If you need to check PCC click the image in the side bar it takes you right there.

Oh and before I forget there is a prize for the randomly picked winner:


My turn for the challenge next week, I'm looking forward to it.........I think you'll like it too.......

TTFN!
