Krafty Robins by Judith Smith

When I received these fabulous new Christmas stamps, the lovely robin images appealed to me the most. I decided to create a very simple colour scheme for this particular sample, choosing Kraft and green as my base. I stamped the large image onto a piece of Kraft card with Adirondack Snow Cap ink, and coloured the image with Polychromos pencils, before blending them with a blending solution. I then stamped the smaller image onto the corner of an 8" x 8" piece of Kraft card, colouring it as before.  I cut a frame in the centre of this piece of card, cutting around the outside of the robin. I made a mount of green card to fit inside the Kraft frame, which I then placed over the larger image.

Some gems in the centre of the snowflakes add a little bit of Christmas bling to an otherwise simple card. Keep popping back to see what the other Design Team members have created this week. Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx
