Nesting – it’s for the Birds!

One of my favorite pastimes is joining swaps over at Artchix.  You always get lots of fun goodies in your swap envelope – and the envelope itself just brightens your whole mailbox!

I just finished my ATCs for the nest swap and actually remembered to take photos of them.  (I forgot to take photos of last month’s blue atc swap, sadly enough.  I don’t even remember what they look like!)

I used a similar technique for all six: adhered 7 Gypsies bird & nest printed tissue, applied “Stormy Sky” Distress Ink onto the rest of the linen-textured card, added an image from Artchix postage stamp sheet “Peace Tranquility Harmony Faux Postage,” added a paper flower and leaves cut from washi tape, used the same washi tape as an accent and added dots or swirls of Stickles glitter glue.

There’s still plenty of time to join the swap; sign-ups are taken until May 20 and they aren’t due until the end of the month.  The only requirement is to use at least one element from Artchix, and since most of the image are available as instant downloads, there’s no excuse not to make some nesting fun!
