Special Robin

You may be relieved to hear this is my last treatise to Tangerine.

CAS Colours and Sketches presented with a pretty grey/brown/orange palette. Hmmm... Didn't want to skimp on my series, and so I started skimming through my files of stamps - paper pieced dress - yep, that would work, Robin - hey, hang on a minute, Robin - genius. Even more fortuitously I had this piece half done in a stack of 'to finish later' bits and bobs. He just needed colouring (distress inks - vintage photo, ripe persimmon, pumice stone) and mounting - ta dah.

My other mission today was CAS, some of the cards I've done recently have felt quite fussy, for me. So CAS it is, and the opportunity to feel I'm properly playing by the rules at Addicted to CAS, Addicted to Stamps and CAS on Sunday.
