Winter Scenes.

Running late again. I was out at a Craft Class all day yesterday and made these cards up late last night to post today.  It's time again for the girls in the Christmas Card Club to show their cards for the theme chosen by Shaz which is Winter or Christmas scenes.  I chose  winter scenes and got my water colour paints out by Caran d'Ache Ganache Studios to make the sky backgrounds.
I have used water colour paper which I gave a liberal coating of water to before using the paints and then dried with my heat gun before doing the stamping and  additional colouring.  Stamps are various by Hobby Art, Inky Licious, Stamp Scapes, Card-io and Artimpressions.

First card.
Using Hobby Arts for the house and trees and Card-io for the geese and deer. The sentiment is by Inky Licious.

Second card.
Using  Hobby Arts for the trees  and gate, Inky Licious for the House scene and Artimpressions for the front fencing. The sentiment  is by Tattered Lace.

One extra card for the pot which is actually cut off the scene above as I was trying to extend the fencing the other side of the cottage but  it didn't match up and looked wrong. So waste not want not I decided to make into a smaller scene. As I had already stamped the fence (Hobby Arts) there wasn't room to include a house so looking through my small stamps I found this man walking his dog by Stamp Scapes so put him in the front and then added the Hobby arts larger tree and bush.
I will be around later to see what the other girls have done and also catch up on all your blog news. I'm off out into the garden now as the shed which got delivered last week is being put up first thing Monday morning and I need to make sure that the proposed site is nice and level.

Hi Valery, great takes on the theme! Love how you've used lots of stamp companies together, I think we often forget we can do that! IT's great when you can save something that wasn't working, fab that you got another card from it! Hugs, Shaz X
