A robin's song

 Hello there lovelies - todays card includes a verse that is very close to my heart - the stamps are all from HobbyArt but i am showing this card for the CountryView Challenges monthly challenge which this month is all about the birds and the bees.

To make this card I used a piece of watercolour card that was a mop up piece when I was watercolouring with some IndigoBlu translucent paints (daffodil and cut grass). Onto this I first stamped and masked the robin, next I stamped the log and then the flower heads. Finally I added the other vegetation and drew in the flower stalks. Lastly, I did the colouring in - for this I used watercolour brush pens from Phil Martin. Then I added the verse - I think its so beautiful - and I am one of those people who sees a robin and feels they are those we have lost keeping an eye on us. We have robins in the garden and often call them Shaun or Grampsy or Daddad! Its silly but gives us comfort!
Hope you have a great day! Don't forget to get your birds and bees makes into Countryview Challenges to be within a chance of winning a £20 voucher!
