Hello and welcome to another Christmas Card Club post; today's Village Scene theme was chosen by our very sweet Rita of RMG Creations. Had to give a good think and some hunting* for something that would fit the bill ---- remembered this Stampendous Snowy Postcard stamp that I had used some time ago. I hope it will serve as my Village look! Here goes:
- Stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, colored sparingly with copics. Center oval was inked with a very fine tip Pentel Slicci gold pen. Outside of the scene was distressed with DI Tea Dye and then one of the Ranger distressing tools. The snowflakes in the sky and places on the ground were dotted with a silvery Sakura gel pen. Looks quite nice IRL.
- Elizabeth Craft Holly die (white snippet), colored with copics, with some Glossy Accents on the berries. Snipped the die apart to fit it around as I wanted it.
- Memory Box Merry Christmas die for the sentiment, again with a white snippet, colored with the Pentel gold pen. The space was not suited to the entire sentiment, so just used the Merry. Might have looked better done in red, but I wanted the holly & berries under it to show, so I used the gold to complement the gold oval frame.
My intentions were to cover the oval space with an oval cut from Sookwang double side tape, then to use Ritz cool white micro glitter over it. However, this idea didn't work out, solely due to operator error. So I still have the 2nd oval scene I had stamped on some double sided tape, which I applied wrong side to - on a piece of card stock. So will get recycled on another project - someday! I rather like the old fashioned look of this one - hope you will too.
Also hope that you'll have time to visit my Club pals' cards - their blogs are listed on the sidebar. You're sure to see some extraordinarily lovely cards, as these ladies are a talented group of bloggers.
Since I've got a few snippety bits on this one, and since I've been so neglectful of late to the Snippeteers and little Parsnip - I'm zipping over the pond to enter the Snippet Playground Challenge. Besides the chance to make some lovely friends, see some gorgeous entries, there is also a super Sheena Douglas prize on offer. Now I know you must have Snippets (British for Scraps!) - so why not look in and perhaps join us?
Happy afternoon. Big hugs. Come again when you can...I love my visitors.
*While I was hunting for this stamp, I turned up the 2 Northwoods Christmas stamps (Hope & Peace) that I had been searching for earlier. Just goes to show: when you ain't concentrating on finding something that you know has to be here, there it appears. I think we have Gremlins in this house!!! LOL
