BBTB2 Challenge with Technique Tuesday

This is my latest project for BBTB2. The challenge was to use Technique Tuesday stamps and the flourish cut from Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. I made a sort of "vignette" in a jar lid. I cut out the 3D trees from Winter Woodland and embossed them with the spiderweb Cuttlebug folder. I added a sprig of a crystal twig, and some other fern & leaf sprigs. I stamped and embossed 2 deer images on pink cardstock, and cut them out. I chalked them, added Stickles and a rhinestone eye to each one. I then stamped the mushrooms from the stamp set and added Stickles to them. I stamped the little flowers, chalked them, cut them out, stickled the centers and glued them onto the leaf sprigs. The flourishes were inked with brown and added to the base and to the frame over the trees. I added the pink flowers with stickled centers. For filler in the bottom of the jar lid, I cut super thin strips of cream cardstock and sort of fashioned a nest from it. I wanted it to have a "woodsy" look but not feel too wintery. I think the pink and light green and cream colors really give it a spring flavor. The stamp set from Technique Tuesday is sooo adorable! Go check out the other designer's creations at BBTB2!
