Wall hanging with quote - 2 missed challenges!!

I started this Wall Hanging at the beginning of the month in response to one Challenge for creating a Wall Hanging and another Challenge for using Quotes. I wrote down all the links and what I had to do for them. Before I could finish it I had a bad spell, feeling unwell, couldn't craft and lost my list. I have no idea where it is so I can't enter the challenges but thought I would post it here anyway now it's finished. I used a rescued chipboard door hanger and coloured it with TH Distress stain in sepia photo.

From the Papermania Tweet stamp set I created the birds using the same ink onto card and softened the images with water. The nest inside the hole was angel fibre on card and coloured with the stain along the torn edges.

The quote is a stamp from Creative Expressions, Artistic stamper set. I pierced a hole under the roof apex and used a brad to attach a plastic hanger from a pair of socks to create a wall hanger. Finally the roof gable was added from card coloured with the ink, a button covered the brass brad, some organza ribbon tied around the quote and 3 buttons added to the trim.

Hope you like it, I really enjoyed doing it and I think I'll make some more with a Christmas Theme for my next Craft Fair in November.

Thank you for looking and any words you may leave me. I love them all and really love to know you've visited. xx
