A Festive Scene

I had a lovely afternoon with my Mum, colouring this charming scene.  It's a Michael Powell stamp which has been coloured with Promarkers.  Because the image is so detailed, I decided to keep the rest of the card quite plain, opting for white on white in the end after laying the image on all sorts of different colours and not finding one I liked.  A bow and some gems were the only embellishments I added, resulting in a card that's almost CAS.  Not my usual thing but I rather like it!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Stampin' for the Weekend - #17 - Christmas
Cute Card Thursday - #234 - Christmas
Addicted to Stamps - #3 - markers
Anything Goes - #75 - Christmas
Tuesday Throwdown - #115 - gems

  9. Hi Wendy, wonderful card - love that image and I think you were quite right to keep the rest of the card simple.

    Your earlier post with the wedding card is just amazing! I never think of doing something as different as that, boring old squares for me!!
