A Christmas Scene...

Good afternoon all and thanks for popping in today. How has your Week gone ?

Good I hope. Mine has be change there , Wednesday was workshops in Hazel Grove and as always it was great to spend time with such lovely friends.

Today I have been making Christmas cards, I thought I had better make a start, especially after two of my special friends, Mandy and Fi have made so many.....I really am playing catch up....

Now the other day another lovely friend of mine Rachel pointed out that there is a Challenge over at the Country View Crafts Challenge Blog..... I thought I would join in...

The theme is ' make a scene '

So I had a wondeful time playing this afternoon....and this is what I hope that you like it...

I started with a piece of Stencil card and the Clarity Leafy Swirl stamp.

Some repeat stamping and I made a wreath. ( I know of my favourite techniques )

Nearly there.

I decided that this was going to be the frame for my scene.

Next some more stamping and some masking, I used VersaFine Smokey Grey ink for this part.

Then using a moon mask, and Adirondack inks I created the sky.

And then the snow...

Next I added the little bird....

Some snow flakes and some dew drops.

Then some Stickles glitter glue. ( I always add this to my craft mat and then paint it on my design)

And the sentiment...

So I am off now to enter this into the pop over the dt have made some wonderful designs....

Have a lovely evening all, and a great weekend.....

See you soon,

Love and hugs
