Stampendous Robin


There is nothing wrong with this robin from Stampendous but I first coloured the berries in pale grey thinking they were mistletoe but I saw people's cards with red berries so I tried to colour them in red it didn't turn ou well so I've been avoiding him.
But I didn't want him waiting till next Autumn and put me off using him again so I quickly made a card with him. Just used the Floral Oval to cut him out and then inked round the edges. I then used a gel pen for the berries but it looked awful so I then added some glossy accents to them don't look too bad now.
The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps December kit I feel really bad I haven't had time to play with it properly but love this sentiment.
Then it was a case of some flowersoft/fun flock mixture on my branches and berries.


I finally got round to cutting some ribbon and photo the goodies for a random winner of my Favourite Five Christmas Creations. Don't forget it starts on Christmas Eve but you have till 4th January to link a post.

  25. Copious amounts of Copic colourless blender and a heat gun (to dry the soaked card) have saved my bacon from many a colouring disaster! Great save Debby - it looks fine to me
