Christmas Robins

 Morning and we have a new "Christmas" challenge starting today at Stamping Sensations.

I made an A4 master board using ditress inks,stencils,craft mag freebie script stamp.The Robin stamp and crackle stamp are from AALL&Create.I then cut it in half and made two slimline cards.I added a number strip from inside the kitchen rolls,sewing thread,wooden beads and a little die cut cat head,the Robins were coloured with Polychromos pencils.Light not too good and colours look a little washed out!

So beautiful

Donna Ellis said...

LOL! I love that little mischievous kitty peeking out, Carol! It makes me wonder what she is up to... I picture a little mischievous Carol at this time of year, preparing for holidays, and bringing happiness everywhere. Ohhh, back to the card (it is WONDERFUL!, as usual, and I DO like the pale use of color in your background!)
