Stampendous Christmas

Chloe and I went up into the loft last night to craft. We don't craft together as much as we used to as she usually has alot of Homework from school. We decided to do Christmas things, so I made two cards both with Stampendous Stamps
First I did this snowman with his string of bulbs, stretched out and glowing in front of him. I stamped him in Versafine Smokey Grey and them watercoloured him. I layered him on to backing paper (don't know what brand -had it for ages!)and added punched snowflakes. I used crystal lacquer on the bulbs to give a glass effect. I wasn't overly happy with the colour scheme on this card.

Next I stamped this little tree also from Stampendous in Versafine Vintage Sepia. I have succumbed to purchasing some Sansodour for coloured pencil blending and gave it a try. I was quite pleased with the outcome but not sure if it's more messing around than using watercolours. The sentiment stamp is from Penny Black and reads "Christmas isn't under a tree, Christmas is in your heart" It hasn't shown up very well on the Photo. I added a Sizzix original Primitive Heart and also stamped on that and them layered it on to the Sentiment. Stamped the swirls around the edge of the card and added glitter. I put chrystal lacquer on the Christmas baubles on the tree and buttons from stash.
