Robin in the Snow

At last I've got my act together and made a tag for Hels Sunday Stamper challenge week 241 where the theme is BIRDS.

Would you believe I made the background on Sunday using Salty Ocean and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks spritzed with Faded Jeans re-inker but then spent all week searching for my little birdie! I knew I had this Artemio wooden bird on a branch but where was he hiding ... why he was in my ribbon box I don't know!! Anyway he's coloured as a Robin with a mix of Sharpie pen and Distress Inks.

I overstamped the background with Tim Holtz's splodgey stamp from his Mixed Media set - I used Snowcap Dabber and then sprinkled on some Rock Candy Dry Glitter. I also created a bit of a snow drift at the bottom. It's just finished with some seam binding and words.

I thought the snow was supposed to go but the car was covered again this morning. Not too much but enough to make me stay in and finish this tag. Hope you like and thanks for looking!!
