When the red, red robin comes bob, bob, bobin' along

I've not made many ATCs before some dinky 2.5" by 3.5" cards were ideal to feature some of these cute robins from LOTV.  I've fussy cut them and raised them on foam pads. 

The ATC base cards are a glossy hot pink card topped with paler pink snowflake embossed card. 

I've used some Christmas themed die cut words in the same glossy pink card. 

Of course I then found that it was a pain-the-proverbial to photograph the glossy card without getting a bright reflection!





Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Robins: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick

These robins are such fun and look good against the pink for something a bit different.
