More Robins

 Morning and WOW 1st December-we have a new Christmas challenge at Scrapping4fun

I cut out a picture of a leaf and used the negative to make a stencil.

Made a background using oxide ink and torn card for the clouds.Quite surprised myself how it turned out so made three and idea for posting as flat.The Robin and sentiment stamps are  from Pink Frog and coloured with promarkers.

Wonderful idea to create your own stencil with the die! I love doing this and it looks like it works out perfectly for your sweet bird image here too! Such a beautiful Christmas set!!

Such clever idea using a leaf picture to make your own stencil and the torn paper for the clouds inside! A very artistic design with the lovely robin! Thanks for the inspiration!

You cut out a picture of a leaf and used it as a negative -- brilliant! I do love this bird and your card design is simple elegance. Good going on the Christmas cards!
