Christmas Village

I have two cards to share today, which were made for a Stamptoberfest challenge to colour the same stamp with two different mediums. The cards are also for the Hero Arts October challenge (Holiday theme).

The Brown Village was embossed with glittery white powder on kraft cardstock and coloured with coloured pencils. I went over all the houses with the white pencil at the end to tone down the colours a bit. Here's the second card:

The Blue Village was embossed with glittery white powder on dark blue cardstock and coloured with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water, mixed on my craft sheet and applied with a paint brush. I used interference blue powder, pearl powder as well as three shades of blue. The background was stamped with Versamark and two shades of blue Perfect Pearls were dusted on top. Perfect Pearls are so hard to photograph, but I think you can see the shine a bit on the second photo.

 Thanks for looking!!
