The Letter R + Music

Those are the guidelines for the current challenge at Dragons Dream Tag It On.  As always, at least one “real” stamp must be used.

So many ideas flowed through my wee brain – until I got to this one!  I just couldn’t shake the song so I gave up fighting and went along with it instead.  It doesn’t help that my son has bit of a Michael Jackson thing going on right now, lol.


And yes ….  My Robin really does rock.


After stamping my bird and various section of music, I coloured my background using my new Gelatos.  Yummy fun, I can tell you.  (I have been watching untold You Tube video’s on their use so I just had to have my first really good play)

I stamped another bird image and coloured that with Gelatos too.  Then I made a spring from a light gauge beading wire and taped it to the back of the cut out image. I then made a wee hole in the tag and fed the spring through to a point where the Robin sat in the right place and taped it in place on the back. So … now he “rocks”.

The cardstock for the title was coloured with Gelatos too and then cut on my Cameo.  I stamped some coloured seam binding with the same music stamp and it was all done.

Thanks for taking a look – why not pop on over to take a look at the other examples – there are some real beauties, I promise.
