Bubble chicks to naughty robins

Good evening.
Back again today with a card to share for the start of this week's ATSM challenge.

It's time to -----

So cards where you make a mark, colouring, stiching, fussy cutting etc.

At the end of October I attended a Copic colouring class run by the lovely Faye Wynn-Jones. We had a great time and one of the sessions involved changing some chicks doing aerobics from Stamping Bella into penguins and robins. I did buy that stamp set but I also had another chick stamp where they were blowing bubbles which I used here. I decided to try the Faye transformation on these chicks and turned bubbles into baubles and chicks into robins. What do you think?
The Christmas foliage was stamped at the top of a white base card using a foliage stamp from the STAMPlorations Christmas Bell Medley set, stamped repeatedly in Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles DI, adding some water with a brush to soften in places. Chicks and bubbles were stamped then coloured using Copics before being fussy cut. Strings and holders were added using a black fine liner and a ruler.

For more inspiration check out the rest of the DT here and join us in our last challenge before the Christmas break.
