Snowy Feathers

Hello Jannet here today, have you started thinking about creating your Christmas/Winter cards and gifts yet? I have actually made one gift already which is for my parents. This Snowy Feathers  plaque, which features the lovely Robin. For once I was quite happy with how it turned  out, so I thought it might look nice as a card too.

I started by creating a background by using a brayer to apply Stonewashed and Terracotta Adirondack inks. and then spritzed over them with water.

The Robin stamped very nicely onto Watercolour card, and I used Watercolours to give him his famous red breast. I then fussy cut him, no feathers were harmed!

I found a comfortable looking twig for the Robin to happily sit on. I dabbed on some fine modelling paste and then shook some Unicorn Sparkles over it to create the glistening snow.
I stamped the Night before Christmas stamp from the Sparkle and Glisten Stamp Set onto the background. To create the icicles I applied a thick line of glossy accents to the top of the card and then stood the card up so it dripped nicely down, I then shook Unicorn Sparkles over the top.
I adhered the Robin onto the twig and attached the twig to the background. I added some dried moss  a pine cone and a festive red berry.
I finished by flittering white paint over the picture to create falling snow.
I hope you have fun making your cards - Unicorn Sparkles everywhere !
