Rudolph Day Robins



Got a blizzard outside right now, can hardly see across the road, think the Beast From The East is here ! We have had overnight snow and small flurries of snow on and off all day but this ones a real white out.  Not many days for the Rudolph challenge this month with February being such a short month. For my card I have used this Robin stamp which I have had for a few years and never made a card with it as I find the robins so hard to colour. This is my third attempt this time and its not wonderful! I finally settled on using watercolour pencils but the robins looked a bit pink so I went over them and the berries with festive berries distress ink. I'd also like to enter my card into

  2. Hi Joan,
    Happy Rudolf Days.
    What a wonderful card and that image of the robins is so sweet.
    I know what you mean about watercolour pencils as I have a similar prob with a project I have just been working on and had to use inks in the end.
    Thank you for joining the Rudolf Challenge.
    By the way we have also had snow in Kent too.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L. DT

  8. Beautiful robins huddled together to keep warm on a winter day. I think it is working as theylook warm and happy too!

    You did a great job on colouring them. I have some bird stamps and am afraid to try and colour them as colouring is not my forte!

    Beautiful card and thanks for taking part in the February Rudolph Days Challenge.
