Christmas Robin


Here's another Christmas card made using the Penny Black clear set called Jolly Friends.  I was first drawn to this set because of this adorable little robin.   He was colored with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, then cut out with a labels one die, leaving the die on to sponge on some tumbled glass distress ink for the background.  Then that was double-framed with red and the pendant nestabilities die.    I chose these colors so that I could enter this into the Shabby Tea Room challenge #34, and I'm also entering it into Penny Black Saturday's "Let it Snow" challenge this week (since the pendant die looks like a giant snowflake to me).

Supplies: red, white and dark aqua cardstocks, PB 30-058 Jolly Friends, Hero Arts CL343 Holiday Sayings, versafine onyx black, versamark, and tumbled glass distress inks, white embossing powder, nestabilites labels one and pendant dies, prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, glue pen and ultrafine prisma glitter, white snowflake button, white twine

  1. LOVE these colors! What an adorable card! I went to Archiver's yesterday and while waiting to check out, I saw this Penny Black stamp set and had to have it! My first. I'm a bit nervous though, as I don't think I'll come close to making as beautiful a card as you and others do with these stamps! But I'll have fun trying! They really are so cute! Love this, Lin!
