I stamped her directly onto some of the digi paper from WINNIE WINTERLAND and coloured her with pencils.  I wanted to create a complete scene so I used a pre-coloured image from the same collection, re-coloured to B/W, added it onto another digi paper and resized to fit behind the window die. I added pops of colour to it to match the rest. 


The cute little robin sitting on the fence is another clear stamp that comes as a BONUS when you purchase this gorgeous STAMP OF THE MONTH. I know!!!
