Today we are showing the winter version of A Cottage Home. It’s called A Christmas Cottage. This is my favorite set from the release. It just has oodles and oodles of potential. I have such a hard time making cards using only one set, but I did it with this card. I hand to slap my hand from adding the Santa in the sleigh image from Twas the night before Christmas…the size it just perfect to slip into the sky behind the house. It will make for a fun addition on future cards.
I used a combination of Copics and colored pencils with OMS. I found that the Copics are great to lay down a base color and the colored pencils work perfectly for the shadows/darker areas. It is easier for me to stay in the lines with colored pencils. And boy oh boy did I use Stickles. About three layers of the stuff (apply a coat wait till it’s dry and then apply another). I get a good chunky/dimensional coating using this process. I cut out the front entryway and popped it up with foam tape. Somehow, with all the supplies I have surrounding me I have to add a bit of bling or ribbon or both. My cards just don’t seem finished without it.
Thanks for joining me over the last few days and taking the time to comment on my projects. I look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing your creations!
