Christmas Robin

Time for my weekly post for Artistic Outpost.
I have another Christmas card for you this week, I hope working ahead will make it a little less of a rush nearer to the Christmas season! I applied Drawing Gum randomly to my background and allowed to dry. I then applied water to the card with a paintbrush and then dipped my paintbrush into Brushos and dipped into the wet areas on my card, I then moved the card around to allow the ink to run and then dried with my heat tool. I then rubbed away the Drawing Gum; any ink resists the Gum.
I then stamped the Robin from the Birds of a Feather stamp set onto the background using Potting Soil Archival Ink. To add further interest I added stencilled stars randomly to the background using Fired Brick Distress Ink and the Stars Layering Stencil.
I added touches of background stamping using the background stamp from the Ephemera Backgrounds stamp set. I then stamped the sentiment 'Happy Christmas' from the Snowy Woods stamp set. To add a further layer of interest I added delicate splatters of Tarnished Brass Distress Paint.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
