Village Scenes (by Julie)

Hello, the two cards I have for you today are based around scene building. All of the sets used are so versatile as they can be used on there own or mixed with many other Chocolate Baroque sets, giving you great value for money.

My first card is stamped with Sunburst Scenes , Village Life and English Cottages
Start by taking some stamping card and stamp the cloud and hill scene from Sunburst Scenes and then further down the page, to the right hand side of the design, stamp the house. Take the little wooden fence from English Cottages and extend the fence that is already next to the house in your stamped design.
You should be left with a gap between the cloud and house scene, so it's a perfect place to stamp the fir tree from Village life. I decided for this scene the fir tree would look better without it's trunk so once you have inked up the stamp, wipe any excess ink from the trunk with a wet wipe before you stamp onto your card.
Once you are happy with your design, colour with water colour, cut to size and mount onto your card.

My second card is created with Sunburst Scenes, English Cottages and Birthday Words.
Take some stamping card and towards the top of your page, stamp the bridge scene, next to the sky scene from Sunburst Scenes. To make them fit together, use a fine liner pen to draw in a cloud so it looks like the sky continues behind the tree in the bridge scene.
In the foreground of your design, stamp the house, fence and trees from English Cottages. 
Colour your design with pencils and water-colour and then over-stamp the foreground with the birthday sentiment from Birthday Words. For added interest I have added a dotty border created with black and white paint pens.

Thanks for stopping by and please call back for daily Design Team inspiration.
