Timeless Twine Mother's Day Challenge!!!

Hello Everyone!!

 Timeless Twine is hosting a special Mother's Day Challenge!!

Simple theme...just create something for Mother's Day with Twine.

Here is my CAS card...

Did say "Where is the Twine?"
Here is a closeup....
I colored the Natural Twine with Distress stain...then made a bird's nest with it.

Its super easy just wrap the twine in a circular pattern...don't have to be perfect round, nest is never perfect circle.
Background is created with simple water color wash and some random splatters  of Heidi Swap color shine mist.
Now the eggs are My Mind's Eye Enamel dots...fun stuff!!
Leaves and bird dies are from Wplus9.
Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

This card is for the following challenges...
Moxie Fab World: Wonder of Watercolor.
Creative Corner :  Flowers and/or Mothers Day
Our Creative Corner :Anything Goes.

So play along with us...you have until May 31st to enter your creations.
Make sure to check out Twine-ology blog for twinetastic DT inspirations!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Amazing how a little wash and spatters can add so much interest and make a great background for your cute nest and birdie! Great job.
