Nature's nest collage with gold embossing.
Do you remember doing Collage as a child. You cut out and stuck a whole lot of different images onto a sheet of art paper in different patterns overlapping and mixing them in a totally random pattern?
It was fun and very satisfying if I remember.
The background card is stamped on an angle with the script stamp from Rustic Rooster as a watermark effect on the Old Olive cardstock. I have stamped it again on the whisper white cardstock panel then in chocolate chip ink I have randomly stamped some of the words from the Life Definitions stampset. Delight and Create.
Finally I have gold embossed a dragon fly from the Nature's nest stampset.
