It's Wednesday! Good, if you're looking towards the end of the week; less good if you're thinking about the dwindling days and all the things to get done before Christmas... :P
However, Wednesday also means a new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges. This week, we are looking for a winter scene. Our generous sponsor this week is Whimsy Stamps.
I decided there were two ways to look at this challenge. First, you could find a ready-made scene:
There's a great old-fashioned feel to this little scene. After colouring it with watercolour pencils, it only needed a little patterned paper and a sentiment to finish it off.
The second, and perhaps more creative way to approach this challenge is to create your own scene.
I'm not done playing with these fun reindeer in their attractive sweaters yet! And this sweater has it all: polka dots, snowflakes AND glitter embossing! Back in October, I saw this card, and even then thought it was a great idea for a snowscape. And I hadn't used paint-chip trees yet this year! Everything came together in this little winter scene.
Hope you're inspired to create your own little scene and link up with us at Crafty Creations Challenges!
