Winter wonderland challenge–DT project

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you’ve had a brilliant week so far – the weekend is nearly here woohoo!  I can’t believe how quickly this week has flown by – not that I’m complaining of course. 

I’m here this morning with my DT project for this week’s winter wonderland challenge.  This week the lovely Suzi has set the theme and she has chosen “robin redbreast” so we want to see all your images featuring robins – simples right !!  I decided to make a door hanger for a change:

WW #18 - robin red breast

WW #18 - robin red breast (close up)

I am still waiting (not very patiently by the way lol!) for my printer ink to be delivered so I had to search through my stamps for a suitable image.  I was super pleased to find this adorable wild rose studio ‘Milton & co ‘ stamp called “Milton & robin” to use.  I coloured the image with a mix of promarkers and flex markers simply added a large ribbon bow and pearls for decoration.  I used my circle nesties to cut out the aperture for the door handle.  I have to say it looks much nicer IRL and I’m quite happy with the finished result – for once haha!

Our sponsors this week are pink gem designs and they are offering 4 digis of the winner’s choice and also squiggle stamps who are offering 2 digis of the winner’s choice.

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
