Kissing Robins

Good Morning!
It must be Thursday as I have a Just Inklined card to share!
I'm sorry if it's too soon but it's a little Christmas card!

The image  have used is the lovely Kissing Robins 
perfect for Bird Lovers! Oh & Christmas too,
if you don't mind me using the C word! lol
You can find them here at Just inklined.

I cut out the image with a circle die & inked with Brushed Cordouroy & Vintage Linen
Distress inks then  used my ususal mix of Flexmarkers & Promarkers to colour them up.

The card base is 6x6 inches, Kraft Cardstock, from Southfields.
The papers I have used are from the First Edition Christmas Village
 paper stack. I just love them, the colours are great!
The twine & button twine are from my stash as are the little bells!
The sentiment was die cut from the base dp too.
Thanks for popping in today! Don't forget to check out the 
 Just Inklined shop! There are new images being added all the time!

  33. I'm so glad you entered another project with us over at Opus Gluei, you do that whenever you like! Your robins are so beautiful and it's wonderful to get a jump on Christmas card making indeed! The coloring is perfect and I love the extra touches that make it sing (okay, bad bird pun, sing, birds, hee hee). I love the bells and the patterned paper you punched, that's cool!

  34. Beautiful card - such a sweet image.
