Mr Robin (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with a card featuring one of the new stamps called Mr Robin, I adore robins and mince pies so this stamp is going to be one of my all time favourites.

I stamped the image and coloured it with Lyra Polycolour Pencils. I inked around the image using distress inks (Pine Needles and Festive Berries) and then added a little distressing with Gathered Twigs. I stamped and embossed a holly border using one of the little stamps from Family Christmas with versamark ink and used a chunky embossing powder, and then added a sprinkle of gold frantage powder. I stamped the sentiment and added a bow topped with a little button and some twine to finish the card.

Thanks for visiting today.

  1. I adore this Claire, the colours are gorgeous and Mr Robin has the reddest feathers I have ever seen and love the way you have used the same colour for the highlights and the sentiment, and a pretty ribbon embellishment too. x
