Robin Redbreast

I bought this image some time ago and didn't actually get my head around the best way to use it. Here I have used several inks to colour the various parts of the stamp.
The shape of the robin's red breast was made using a Cat's Eye ink pad... a great help for getting the curve of colour.
The legs and beak were inked with Whisper Pens and the main body of the bird and the branch again used Cat's Eyes inks.
Simply mounted on Nesties... it's a clean and simple Christmas card.
