Love them both! I think the brown one is my fave, but it edges out the blue by just a hair. And I like the brighter blue version, but then I'm a bright color gal. thanks for sharing them w us.
Both images are absolutely exquisite. I love the brown one because it is not a color palette I would have thought of for a Christmas card. And I love the shimmer of the blue one. Breathtaking. Thanks so much for playing.
Great card for Christmas... I too love your coloring. It is perfect stamped on the craft CS!
Oh my...they are all awesome! Love the coloring on them!
Hi, Anna-Karin! Wow! I love how different your two cards look! I like that you did one horizontally and the other vertically, too. It is so hard to capture some details like shine and shimmer in photos! Love them both! :-)
Wow, these are just beautiful!

These two cards are for SOF11 Colouring 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. The Blue Village was embossed with glittery white powder on dark blue cardstock and coloured with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water, using 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. TFL!!
