Another Tweet Christmas card

I can't help it, I just ADORE the Woodware robins stamp set!



This time I've used just one of the cheeky little chaps, carrying a holly leaf in his beak. The branch is stamped with a stamp that actually has lots of leaves on it, but they are obviously deciduous leaves that wouldn't be around at Christmas time, so I covered the leaves up with masking tape before inking the stamp. The  resulting branch didn't look "twiggy" enough, so I used a marker pen to twigify it up a bit. Then I added a touch of frost and some icicles using Stickles - it is actually white but on the photo it seems to be reflecting the red and brown of the image. Oh well at least the sparkle shows - you can't win really when it comes to photographing glitter!

I am sharing this with:
