Festive Robin with Abstract Fragments

The crackle background from Abstract Fragments is quickly climbing to the top of my favourite stamps list. I had the colours for this card in my head before I chose the stamp for the main image.

For the background I inked the stamp with Archival Ink Potting Shed and randomly stamped onto white card. The stamp fits together beautifully as it has no straight edges. Around the edges of the card I used Festive Berries Distress Ink. The Robin sitting on the Bird house is form the Christmas Tweetings set was stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold powder. I water coloured the image with Distress Inks, added the sentiment and a little red ribbon. This card will be added to my Christmas card box which will be opened soon. I can't believe how quickly the festive season is coming around this year.
Many thanks for visiting. Debbie

I can see why the fragment stamp is becoming a favorite Debbie, it makes a gorgeous background and backdrop to the main stamp you've used.

This looks lovely with the colours you've used & the traditional image of the robin is a real delight. Your layout & matting really allows the principal image to be the star of the show whilst the crackle background provides a well 'grounded' supporting act. Thanks for the detail about how the stamp fits together too - something I'm always trying to achieve!

Hi Debbie, your background with the fragment is beautiful (I love this stamp set too :)) The bird & house is beautiful in the gold embossing. I hope you are having a great day, Shirleyxx
