I've used a digi image named Christmas Robin, designed by Crafts and Me Stamps' newest artist Sue Rundle-Hughes. This fabulous snowy scene is loaded with gorgeous detail for your coloring pleasure. You can get your own Christmas Robin here.
Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image. I die cut my image using an old Sizzix original scalloped tag. I added some glimmering texture to the background snowy areas by using a microtip applicator to pounce tiny amounts of Adirondack Metallics Acrylic "Pearl" paint over some areas. I added Marvy Uchida Liquid Applique' over the flower pot in the front. Copic Opaque White acrylic paint defines the falling snowflakes. Whew! Lots going on here!
I created my own robin charm by printing the full image onto Grafix Ink Jet Shrink Film. I used Copic colors to fill in the robin, cut it out, punched a hole to hold a jump ring then shrunk it using my heat tool.
I've layered Memory Box Yuletide collection papers with Bazzill cardstock and Bo Bunny's double dots in yellow to form my easel card. I added a border of faux stitching with a Zig Pure Green marker.
Using Quilled Creations Blooming Roses dies to die cut my swirls, I rolled three sizes of coordinating roses. A few swipes of Adirondack Metallics Acrylic Pearl paint across the tips of the rose petals gives the appearance that snow fell on the petals. Cheery Lynn Designs Mini Fanciful Flourish and McGill pine branch punches surround my image and bird cage.
and a view of the base showing an Inkadinkado sentiment die cut with a Sizzix Tags Scallop Combo #2 . . .
