Village Scene

A second card today, this is for the challenge at Bah Humbug - A Christmas Scene. My image is a PSX stamp I have had for years, but think it fits the bill, I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and embossed with clear ep. I coloured the houses with Copics and added Stardust Stickles. The starry paper is a free magazine one and the snowflake card behind the image is from Kanban. I added some punched snowflakes and the sentiment is a rub-on.

*Cheers*


My DT card today is for the challenge at My Time to Craft which this week is "Drink Up". I didn't have any suitable stamps but managed to find this decoupage in my stash. The papers are Hampstead by Papermania, I added brads and stamped "Cheers".
