Christmas Robins

I couldn't decide how to mount these beautiful Robins up (from Just Inklined) when I'd finished colouring them in. I was originally going to go with a traditional Christmas card, but ended up being a bit dramatic and going with black and red.

The black glitter card is absolutely gorgeous in real life, but as per usual the photo doesn't do it justice. I couldn't use a punch on it so had to resort to my good old Romance embossing board to do the scalloped edge.
Sorry I can't remember the Promarker colours I used, but I do know I used my blender pen for the very first time on the robins red breasts!!
The Christmas Robins can be found here.

Have a lovely weekend whatever you're doing xxx

Oh I can imagine how stunning that black glitter is & the red contrast makes it look so smart & modern even though the robins are a traditional image. WELL DONE KAREN Another triumph ! It's a stunning card
