Happy Robin Christmas

Hello there. I hope you are all well. This card is for the new challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge, which begins today:

The theme for this challenge – and all the challenges actually – are anything goes, as long as it a Christmas. Come along and join us to get your stash ready for the end of the year………..the Design Team have some amazing inspiration………..

I had a recent delivery of the Clearly Besotted April release, and as I was shopping, I took a look around at their sale pages. This ‘Rockin’ Robin‘ stamp set, matching dies, and add-on stamp set were all in the sale. Well – it would be rude not to buy them, wouldn’t it?

I used the Lawn Fawn ‘Hillside backdrop‘, and after I cut it out – wondering what to do about the background part of it. My eyes fell on my recent purchase (I know, another one) from Catherine Pooler, and the background ‘wild thing‘ stamp, which I thought would look like falling snow – especially when I embossed it with Wow! sparkly powder.

I stamped the images in Gina K amalgam ink, then coloured with Copics. I did stamp the belly’s of the birds with the add-on dotty stamp, but then went over the whole with a red Copic – I wanted a full red belly.

Whilst I was colouring and putting a card together, I made another similar:

This is better for the shimmer

I hope to see your creations on our challenge site – bye for now. 🙂 Lynda
