its beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....

Hello everyone

I did say yesterday that it would soon be time to fill my blog with Christmas makes..... and here is the first of many!

This one is a lovely Christmas village scene using creative expressions stamps.

I've stamped them and coloured with promarkers, cut each piece out (the trees took a while!) and then used copious amounts of glitter.  I am covered in it!

I've layered it up on silver mirri for the mat and used a creative expression embossing folder for the background layer.  I've then rough cut hills and used foam pads for dimension.  Layered the village together and glued in place, and I just love the effect!

This last photo is to show the dimension and layering.

I'd like to enter this into:
