Christmas Robins for Winter Wonderland May Challenge


At Winter Wonderland this month, we are hosted by Helen!
Welcome to our fifth challenge for 2020.

Our theme is:

Your FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBINATION

So here is my card:


Please remember that it is Christmas projects only and they must include the theme.

Our wonderful sponsor is:
All Dressed Up

Hi, my names Wendy, founder of All Dressed Up. I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children (my inspiration behind the characters) - in particular, my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with trends and all things digital.
 Day to day, I work as a textile designer working traditionally within children's wear, fashion and interiors. Although my work is mostly digital, my work process remains hand-drawn which I hope comes across in my artwork.
All Dressed Up was created in 2013 as a place to share my digital stamps which back then was a whole new challenge for me. Since, Ive been lucky to have discovered a whole creative community and welcomed the All Dressed Up design team who have been amazing to work with. Through our online community and Instagram, the team keep me on my toes to keep on drawing, creating and inspiring. My favourite thing is seeing how my characters are continually given brand new personalities!
On our Facebook and Instagram page we host regular tutorials, challenges (and freebies!) and is the real heart of our community. The stamps are available from the All Dressed Up Etsy shop which is continually updated on a monthly basis with lots of limited edition and seasonal stamps available in particular.
The All Dressed Up community is a friendly bunch (if I do say so myself!) and we would love for you to get involved, see your work and for you to share your stamping tips too! Do get in contact and be sure to visit our Facebook and Instagram pages to see what were creating at the moment.


I chose Christmas Robins for my image, which I digitally printed on to X-Press It blending card and then cut out using my paper cutter. 
I actually tried to colour the birds as cardinals, but the black on the belly ended up a bit dark - next time I think I will start with lighter colours.
I have coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • beak - YR12, YR15, YR18, E35
  • birds - R22, R24, R27, R29, R59, W5, C5, C7, 100
  • hats - G02, G05, G07
  • Merry - G02, G05, G07, G09
  • star - YR24, Y28
I then adhered the coloured image on to a white card from Envelope Solutions.
As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Monthly Classes and Bonus Classes from the awesome Alyce at Kit and Clowder.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:

I will add this card to the following challenges:
2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge #38 - May Anything Goes as long as there is a critter or two! I have two little birdies!! 
Christmas with the Cuties #37 - Anything Christmas Goes with the theme Red and Green
