I have always loved the collage style but it doesn’t come naturally to me. The Nature Walk stamp set makes collage stamping easy and using clear-mount stamps makes it even easier. I mounted the bee, butterfly and number stamp on one block and stamped them in More Mustard.
I stamped the bird egg images with Sahara Sand and the floral image with Old Olive. Finally I stamped the bird cage with Midnight Muse and added a wire hanger with a straight edge and the fine tip Midnight Muse marker.
I created the ‘For You’ tag with the Layered Labels stamp set stamped in Old Olive and die-cut with the Apothecary Accents Framelits. I stamped it again with Midnight Muse and punched with the large oval punch and layered it all with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch was knotted on with stitched Midnight Muse ribbon.
I was going for a simple, sophisticated collage greeting card. I hope I hit the mark! What do you think?
