Robin Redbreast


I like making a variety of Christmas cards and this Woodware robin teamed with the new Dovecraft Winter Blooms papers makes for a traditional style. I used my MS holly PATP set and added some ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. I coloured the image with Copics of course and I am really pleased with the way it turned out.

Lovely card Marianne. Those new PPs look great.
I just realised I haven't used any of my PATP stamps for ages. I really need to dig them out and give them a bit of a workout.
