Penny Black Saturday Challenge-Anything Goes... Winter Illumination

Mid Way Reminder

Anything Goes!

I knew if I did not finish this card...I would loose all the parts and pieces I had ready to go.  Of course, it was meant to be finished and sent last month, but hey, that's another story!

I was a little stumped on how to use this stamp set as the window has a row of bricks around it, but not enough to complete a background. What I did was cut the window out and drew in building siding to complete my scene...Worked pretty slick. I am pretty sure that trick was inspired by Sandy Allnock-she is amazing!

I also drew in the ground and added glitter to it. I finished off the scene with a fun lamp post that is included in this Winter Illumination stamp set, and several little critters from Holly Day Critters and Jolly Friends. Transparent sets are perfectly sized to add to little scenes like this!

I put this scene together and debated whether to add snow flakes or not...a lot of work if I didn't like it. I fretted for about a minute and just went with it LOL! I am glad I did. Stamped pieces were cut out with my ScanNCut2. Although I only use it  to cut out stamps, it has more than endeared itself to me!

I hope you can find time to join our January Challenge! Take a hop over to the blog (link at the top) and peek at all the wonderful inspiration shared already!

Oh my gracious Sue, I am in awe of this card, the brightness and the absolutely cuteness of it and the window the adorable mousies . What an awesome card.

Sandy said...

You might think this card says Merry Christmas but I think these little fellas know that this is a very important day for the Jacksonville Jaguars. They play the New England Patriots today and the winner will be going to the Superbowl. So I think these sweet critters are super excited to see the ball game even if it is snowing!
Fantastic scene Sue - Did you use Copics - the colors and coloring are great. You mentioned Sandy Allnock, have you taken Copic lessons from her?
I love the colors - so rich and perfect. And your coloring? Fabulous!!!! Bravo Sue!!

Wow! Your siding looks amazing and it's the cutest Christmas card! I'm glad you didn't lose any of those parts. I'm happy to see a Christmas card anytime. Trying to finish up a batch before I start losing parts, too.
