I thought I would challenge myself today and create a winter village scene using perspective tips that I learned from art class! For my A7 card design, I combined a few of my different Lawn Fawn Christmas stamp sets. The roof that Mrs. Clause and Santa are standing on was created with a Martha Stewart border punch. No dies were needed! All of the images were watercolored with my zig clean color real brush markers. To see how this card came together, check out the video below!
This card and the coordinating pop up box card have both sold out!
The entire time I was creating this card, I kept singing "Up on the roof top, click, click, click." I'm sure I'm not the only one who creates a card that reminds them of a song or movie right? Anyways, I started this card off by ink blending the sky. I used Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress oxide inks.
I created the rooftop with a (6.75 x 2.25") brown strip of cardstock. To create the shingles, I used a retired Martha Stewart Border punch. I punched out two thin borders using kraft card stock and layered them on top of the brown strip. You can maybe find a punch or die in your stash to create a similar look! Lawn Fawn also has a roof shingle die you can check out! After gluing the shingles, I cut two diagonal lines on the top left and right corners. This created more of a roof line shape. Then, I added some snow to the top of my roof and the chimney. The chimney was created with a CottageCutz die. To make the roof a little more festive, I added some light strings!
To create the sense of three-dimension, I added my larger Santa and Mrs. Clause images on top of the roof along with the bag of toys. Behind the roof, which I popped up with foam tape, I added two stitched snow hills and my smaller houses, trees and lamp post. Because they are slightly smaller images it appears that the village is far off in the distance, cool, right?
