Another Snowy Cottage for Craft a Scene

 Here is my second offering for Craft a Scene this month where the theme is snowy cottages. For this one I used a snowy cottage stamp from Sheena Douglass, and added an extra tree and a few bits of foliage from Inkylicious. I stamped it in Memento London Fog and coloured with promarkers, but the sheep were blending into the background. I wasn't sure what to do about it, but eventually got my fine liner and went over them in black. I think it turned out okay. I added a couple of die cut flourishes at the corners (a Christmas present) and some turquoise flat backed pearls. Thanks for looking and I hope you will have a go at our Craft a Scene challenge this month.

  10. It's definitely more than OK - perfect solution with those sheep for they look as if they're going to walk right off the card.

  11. You really are a master at creating these beautiful scenes, Sally. I think you caught the sheep perfectly and those corners are yummy!
    We have had a good fall of snow here today and it's still coming down so F has got her wish at last and a day off school!!!
    Hope you are coping with it too.

  15. This is a lovely scene Sally. The sheep look perfect done over in the black. I can see that they would have blended into the wall if left brown. Hugs Mrs A.
