Christmas robins

These two cards each feature a robin, but they have something else in common - they both have elements recycled from old cards received. For the first card I used a greyscale picture and just added colour to the robin's breast.

The backkground papers are Echo park 'very merry Christmas' - the papers are double sided, so there's more choice from the pad. On the first card I added some lace and a greeting. The second card has a gingham ribbon bow and the addition of the sentiment.

These are for:

Sarn's Rudolph day (just scraping in at almost the last minute!)

  3. Hazel, love these Robins. Adding the touch of red breast on the gray robin, really popped this little sweetie. Love the way you have used the ornament shape on #2 to show off this little fella. Those papers are lovely. TFS & Hugs.

  4. The robins are darling, Hazel, and I love that you are recycling them, so someone else can get enjoyment from them, too - well done! Thanks so much for sharing them with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  5. The red of the robin really pops now on the greyscale card!
