Robin Christmas Card

Happy Stir Up Sunday! It’s less than 6 weeks until Christmas so I thought I would share a wee Christmas Card I made using Robins by Jaine Drake which is part of the Sarah Hurley Special Editions Range.

Robins by Jaine Drake Special Editions

Here’s a wee step by step of how to do it;

1 Cut a piece of watercolour card to 14.5cm x 14.5cm and wet it using a paintbrush and some water.
2 Using Prussian Blue Brusho make your background on the damp piece of card, add some Black Brusho to the very top to make it more like the sky.
3 While your background is drying, stamp out two wee robins with Black Archival Ink, then watercolour them with Distress Inks, I used Festive Berries and Ground Espresso.
4 Fussy cut your wee birdies out once they are dry.
5 Stamp a branch onto your page with Archival and make some foliage using Evergreen Bough Distress Ink.
6 Sprinkle some Frantage over the piece of card and heat from behind, otherwise you will blow it all off the page(not that I tried that you understand!)
7 Stick your watercolour card onto your card blank.
7 Pop your robins onto the branch using 3d foam, I chopped one of their legs off so it looks like they are sitting down and there you have it.

Ingredients
Robins by Jaine Drake Special Editions, Brushos, Distress Inks, Archival Inks, Card Blank, PVA Glue, 3D Foam from Stix2, Watercolour Card.
