Bah Humbug challenge....

Lovely to be back in my craft room after spending a lovely week with the grandchildren we all had a really good time and they went home very happy...thats what grandparents are for isn't it?
Bah Humbugs challenge this week is called 'Things that Fly'....
Decided to use the old PSX stamp which unfortunately doesn't have a name on it.  Coloured with copics but I'm not too happy with my colouring and I should have used penicls and got a softer look... I have used Glossy accents on the berries and also on the eyes of the birds.
Backing paper is from Papermania, you know when you buy paper pads there always colours in there which you tend to leave and these are two of them but thought they went o.k. with the 'brightly' coloured robins!!   S.U. Border punch and Quickutz corner die also used.

As you say - great minds but your robins are more conventional than my quirky ones!!

Fantastic card, Anne, and I love your idea of putting glossy accents on the berries. Funny how those papers that we don't like suddenly come into their own on a certain project. glad you had a nice time with your grandkids, nice that they went home happy. Cob

Hi Anne, what a lovely robin stamp - really like the different expressions on their wee faces. I actually like your colouring but if you feel the colours are a little too bright, maybe try adding some sparkle, either glitter or embossing powder, which may help tone it down a little. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!

Luv'n'Stuff

I lvoe the boldness of this card - I think is you did tone the robins down the background paper may take over.
It's a brill card - think we crafters are our own worst enemies for never being totally happy with what we create.
