Nature's Walk and Nest

Wow, what a lot of fantastic entries for our make your mark challenge last week.  This time round at Addicted to Stamps, it's Bingo week to tempt you out to play!

Here what I made:

I combined the lovely nest out of Nature's Nest with the thrush from Nature Walk to create this mini little scene, which I'm rather pleased with, though I couldn't see the card coming together.  The greeting is part of one from Happiest Birthday Wishes (using my marker pens to colour in the bit I wanted).  I think it's all pretty straightforward so I won't waffle on, but do email if you've got any questions.

Stamps: Nature Walk, Nature's Nest, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Ink: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, marker pens in Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Bashful Blue, Wild Wasabi and Certainly Celery
Card: Pear Pizzaz (retiring soon - get it while you can!), Soft Suede, Whisper White
Other: sponge daubers, Crumb Cake taffeta ribbon, stamp-a-ma-jig

Here is the bingo grid so you can play along:

I chose circle, free (technique- using markers to colour my stamps directly) and birthday.

A picture to amuse you:
