Night Village - -Take 1

I’m back! Does anyone else find that week before school officially starts as hectic as I do??!!
Anyway - I’ve been getting excited about Fall coming, and Christmas too! Lots of great photo ops, food and, of course, Christmas Cards to make!

This stamp is a brand new release from Sunshine Designs. I am still playing with the colours – and shading, and I think next time I will emboss the actual outline, but I really love this stamp! I also want to try the stamp out as a morning village scene – making the sky and sun a yellow, pink and red-ish sunrise – might be a neat experiment! If you haven’t seen the new releases from Sunshine Designs – check out the website HERE. They are absolutely beautiful! If your local scrapbook store doesn’t carry the stamps, you can order on-line!

Night Village:
Card dimensions 5” h x 6 ½ ” w

Materials: CS – Red, Green (Bazzill), Navy (Generations); Paper – Watercolour Paper (Hilroy); Ink –Black StazOn, Garden Green (CTMH); Stamp – Night Village, Christmas Mini-Cube (Sunshine Designs); Ribbon – green grosgrain (ribbon share - texasjodylynn); Tombow markers, waterbrush, glitter glue, Pop dots.

Image was stamped in Black StazOn and watercoloured with markers. Takes a bit of time, as there is a lot of colouring - but it was FUN!

Until next time, have a great day!

This is such an awesome stamp and card, it would be intersting to see it done as a sunrise. One quesiton did you do the shadows on the snow, that is so neat.
