Winter Village

 Hi Friends,

After starting and stopping all week I have finally managed to complete a card.....and I have time to write the post before I go to bed and the linky closes :)  I loved the inspiration photo for this weeks Merry Monday Challenge, so many possibilities and great colours.  I had a few ideas, but in the end only managed to get one card done.  

Here it is:

Craftin Desert Divas Digital Stamp - Winter Village
MFT Stamps - Hand Lettered Holiday
MFT Die-namics - Stitched Arch Stax
Lawn Fawn Dies - Stitched Hillside Borders
Simon Says Stamp Stencil - Falling Snow
Distress Ink - Salty Ocean
Simon Says Stamp Dye Ink - Black
Dreamweaver Embossing Paste - White
Tim Holtz Distress Glitter - Clear Rock Candy
Zig Wink of Stella - Clear

The buildings and the trees are from a digital stamp set called Winter Village from Craftin Desert Diva's. What I love most about digi's is the fact you can resize them for your project, which I did here, making them smaller.  I coloured them in with copics and added rock candy to the snowy areas and fuzzy cut them out.

For the background I sponged some distress ink onto white cardstock and then applied the embossing paste, and then diecut the snow hills, and layered everything together. From this photo it is very hard to see the dimenson. I will take some more photos tomorrow in the daylight which will hopefully show this better.

I diecut the arch window directly out of the card front and then created the frame around it by using the two largest dies in the stax. The scene was then placed behind this. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the card base.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Thanks so much for popping by and taking a look. I hope you had/are having a great weekend.
