Warm and Cosy - Available

i was looking through my Christmas stamps and found this tiny House Mouse stamp. The background is Peeled Paint Distress ink dabbed on with a hard stipple brush and tiny blue snowflakes.

Fun in the Snow - Available

I made this ATC using a glittered chipboard tag and the same complementary stamp, which I used to stamp the 4 black and white images of the background.

I made these for an Alphabet swap a while ago - and made similar doubles of each one. I was pleased with how the artists palette turned out - I used Crystal Lacquar colours (the ones that still work, not very thrilled with them though because the colours are not stable - my green purple and brown all look more or less the same now ..
EDIT - The ARTIST PALETTE has now gone to a new home.
EDIT - The CHURCH has gone to a new home also

Tea and a Chat
