A Winter's Day

I think I'm getting faster...
it only took me 2 hours to make this card this morning!!
This follows a lovely sketch, by Heather, over on
I do like those sketches where you can use your larger stamps
and make them the main focus of the card.
The extra challenge this week is to use a minimum
of 3 stamps.

The 3 stamps I used were all from the Woodware,
Winter's Day set.
I stamped the robin in the foreground,
and then masked him, to stamp on the watering can scene.
My third stamp was the 'A Winter's Day' sentiment.

Stamps, as above, coloured with watercolour paints
and sprinkled with Polar White Flower Soft.
Design Paper - K & Co Peppermint Twist
Snowflake border and sticky pearls from my stash.
