Non - Traditional Colours.

It's time once again for the girls
in the Christmas Card Club
to show our cards for the last challenge 
of the current  year
which was set by Granmargaret.

'Non- Traditional Colours.'

The card that I have made is so not what  I started
out to make but you know what?
I absolutely love the result! 

I matted chestnut brown card stock onto a blank card base.
Design paper was in my stash but I have no name on the back.
More card stock in donkey brown and then
I created this little scene using  'Stampscapes'
Tree Cluster Sm and  small Buck.
I already had the scalloped  die cut circle cut out in my stash .
I used various shades of distress inks in Browns/Wild honey
for sky, sun and hills and stamped the images using  Walnut Stain.
The sentiment is a gold peel off which I stuck onto a scrap of card
which I then coloured to match the secene.
The wording and scene are both popped up on 3D  pads.

I painted diamond Stickles  onto the scene
and this close up shows some 
of  the lovely  sparkle it gives.

I love it too! Stampscapes make the best stamps to create a scene, and I so forget about them. Love the color choices with the particular SS stamps that you have on this - and the scallop shape was a very interesting presentation. Love the glow of that setting sun in the background with the buck & his herd. Well done. Am enjoying the elf antics too. Great non-traditional colors & love the woodsy feel to this. TFS & Merry Christmas. Hugs too.

This is such a pretty woodland scene, Mrs A.! I love the addition of the stickles! Gives it a frosty look!
