Hi everyone. I have a card today featuring the Winter Robin by Hobby Art Stamps, which I notice is unfortunately out of stock at the moment, and was intended as one half of my Twofer entry, but sadly the second never materialised. I'm afraid my mojo is somewhat spasmodic and the spirit is willing but the flesh is a bit weak at present..lol. The compensation is that this can now be my entry for the Rudolph Days Challenge run by the lovely Mo, and of course is the last one for this year, and great that I managed to finish on a high note there where I have sadly failed with others.
I stamped it with Versafine Majestic Blue Ink and heat embossed it with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I had intended to do it in shades of blue but then I decided after all to use these colours of Distress Inks which I applied with a waterbrush. I didn't think it made that much difference to the finished look as the blue is very dark in real life, although looks a little more blue in the photo. I then added the gold stars using a freebie stencil which I have had for a very long time, using Brilliance Galaxy Gold Ink, also used for the sentiment which I heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I also added some white gel pen to highlight the snow and holly and berries, and added in a few shadows using coloured pencils.
I layered it on to a piece of gold mirri card before adding it to my 6" square white card.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I'll see you again soon.
