The DT was given an extra addition to add to the challenge...we are to add a touch of gloss.

Here is what the dt came up with
Karen Dunbrook...March Guest
Karen Amidon...that's me!

I have made a very simple card using the, "Nest in Tree" stamped in Memento, Rich Cocoa. The eggs were colored with Copics and Viva Gloss Gel was added. 

Here you can see the gloss that has been added to the eggs!

I wanted to show the nest used in a different way.
I started out with stamping the Nest in Leaf Green. Prisma colors were used along with Gamsol. I then fussy cut G45's, A Time to Flourish, March papers. Silicone was placed under the petals for added dimension. 

On the inside I have used the Happy Spring stamp.

Thanks for looking and have a fabulous day!

  1. These are so pretty, Karen! I love the colors and it took me quit a while to figure out that was dp on your second one, lol. I couldn't figure out what stamp that was. Just lovely!

  2. Wow - I love the simplicity of the first - so clean - but still lots of layers, but omg the altered image? Amazing! You integrated the paper with the stamped image seamlessly. So creative and interesting!

  3. Karen ,I love the details on your cards ,the second one looks like the 3d pictures with layers and layers. Absoultly stunning! Wow! Just wow!

  4. Oh my Karen! I love both of your cards! I do love a simple card (it's all I can imagine myself being able to finish!) but your 2nd one is a work of art! I would frame it and hang it on the wall! Gorgeous!
