Snowflake Robin

Good afternoon and thank you for popping 
in this Sunday. 

I hope you are having a great day. 

Here is my card for today. 

I have used Penny Black stamp onto white card stock. I used my Misti stamping 
tool which is a great tool to help get an even image. 

I have used masking fluid to mask off the sections I did not want to get ink on. 

Selection of inks used. I did use a sponge smoothie to colour in as that 
did not drag the masking fluid. 
The plastic at the bottom of the image was used to mask off the bottom 

Background inked up still showing the masking fluid

Cut down the image and colour in the robin and trees. 

Then to give more detail to the snowflakes I added acrylic paint. 

Added a snippet of a topper with a snowflake on and added a ribbon. 
Mounted onto black card onto a white card blank. 

I do love this stamp from Penny Black......
hope you do too.

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following
