Christmas Robins

Morning and welcome, today I have my weekly post for Artistic Outpost, showcasing the fabulous Birds of A Feather stamp set.
I created a masterboard/mixed media background to showcase the fabulous Robins from the Birds of A Feather stamp set. I began by spritzing white card with water and then brayering the card lightly with Broken China Distress Paint. I then applied touches of Salty Ocean followed by Dusty Concord Distress Paint and then dried with a heat tool.
I added a few scratchy paint lines with an old credit card and then stamped the Robin onto the background. I created a mask of the Robin and then stamped him a second time. I stamped the Robins onto separate pieces of white card and then adhered to the base imagery to add dimension.
I die cut the Christmas Sentiment from card coloured with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and added 'Robin' from the Birds of A Feather stamp set, stamped onto a piece of the mixed media background I created. I also added die cut snowflakes for added interest and dimension, adding a metal pewter snowflake to the top.
Stencilled stars have been added to the background along with some delicate splatters of Picket Fence Distress Paint.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Love this wintery card, Tracy!! I love these Robins set in this winter scene--our robins go away during winter and I've got a good 3-4 months to go until they come back--So, your wintery Robin cards tie me over until then!! :) :) XOXO-Shari
