I've had a lot of fun with this challenge, and to prove it, here is a whole flock of Robins!
We have a shaker card, 4 cards and 4 tags too.
The main set of stamps used is called Round Robins, and is from Hobby Art.
The Robins were stamped In Versafine Clair Nocturne, then heat embossed using clear powder.
The colouring was done with Promarkers- Tan/Firewood for the browns and Lipstick Red/Crimson for the red.
I masked them all off, and brushed Broken China and Faded Jeans across the tops, having placed a torn piece of paper to make the hills. A thin line of Stickles in Baby Blue defined the edge.
I added a few glittery peel off snowflakes- they were actually 'waste' from the backing sheet!
The 'odd' image is from a set called Winter Birds, by Inkadinkado.
Not sure if he really is a Robin, but sort of looks similar.😊
That one was heat embossed using Stampendous EP called Holographic, and is really cool, as the longer you heat it, the more the colours change. I just added some DI Broken China/Faded Jeans from the centre out, and used the same blues to dust around the other Robins. Punched a hole & added ribbon.
I was almost done, when I remembered I had an Imagination Crafts stencil called Singing Robins. So, I made them up using stencil paste, then left them to dry so I could foil them.
While they were drying, I went back to the robin with the letter in his beak.
Stamped his hat,then masked the hat to stamp him in place. I also stamped the letter first of all, so I could position his beak over it. Good old TH Stamping Platform!
I filled in the white parts of the hat with an embossing pen, then added Stampendous EP in Sparkle Puff. Don't know if that's available, I've had it for years, but you could get the same effect by mixing a pinch of glitter with any Puff Powder.
I thought the 'snow' half of the card looked a bit bare, so I added some Embossing ink, then sprinkled on a WOW! EP called Snowfall.
So that's it for this challenge, and 5 cards and 4 tags added to my Christmas Card collection!
