The Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop

 Hello friends!  Are you ready for some fun?  I hope so because it's time for the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop!  This month the theme for the Hop is Christmas so everyone who is participating in the Hop has used their Taylored Expression Christmas stamps to create a card or project.  For my card I used the TE stamp sets Branching Out and Branching Out Coordinates as well as one of Taylor's past sketch challenges, TESCC61.  You can see from the picture below that I stamped the bare tree branch from the set then added three leaves, stamped the three ornaments and used Liquid Applique and glitter to give the effect of a snow covered branch.  I colored the leaves and ornaments using Copic markers and added a touch of Spica glitter pen to each of them.  Then I stamped two of the little birds from the set, colored and cut them out and using foam tape placed them perched on top of the snow covered branch. 
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the Taylored Expression Blast from the Past Blog Hop!
