micheal powell christmas stamp...



Hello everybobs xx  this card was made using my latest stamp by Micheal Powell sold by the Urban stamps range/Papemania.  Like i did with his lighthouse stamp, I prefered it to be a little bit more 3D so stamped the image out 5 times and cut it down into layers to decoupage...Coloured as usual with my promarkers, I did enjoy doing these little houses...  I added flat backed pearls where the christmas lights should be for a nice effect...and a bit of stickles on the snow..
The night sky was done using distress inks on the first layer..(weathered wood, faded jeans and chipped saphire)
