#1 Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles – Beautiful Robins with Free As a Bird and Wink of Stella
I have a confession to make. I’m not very good at drawing and colouring and the like, and I love to use blends, watercolour pencils and wink of stella to do all the hard work for me.
As I’m British and our Christmas bird symbol is a Robin, I really wanted to create my own using the Free as a Bird stamp set, but instead of trying to do all the blending with browns and reds onto white, I decided to stamp onto Crumb Cake instead and let some of that colour work for me!
I firstly coloured the red breast with real red and wink of stella and then added a little early espresso around the edges and let it naturally blend together with the crumb cake showing through.
I think it worked!
I used Shaded Spruce in the same way for the leaves, but decided to make those flowers stark white by using the Chalk Marker technique I showed a few weeks ago.
I love how the card came out, and with the matching Stitched Nested Label dies, it’s a rather lovely card.
I hope you enjoyed this project, I absolutely adore what I do and spend many hours working on designs, new projects, new ideas and more.
I love to spoil all the people who shop with me, so every month I post out a handmade card, an exclusive newsletter and a product gift too.
