I spent so much time trying to get a decent picture of this artsy card........just ridiculous....and I'm still unhappy. But, it is the best I could do.
When my Sis was visiting a few weeks ago, we went to a super scrapbook store and I saw this image and fell in love with it. I have been trying to figure out how to work it into a Christmas card. I saw Merry Monday challenge #80 to use music or a carol inspired theme. I decided I would make my Tuscan village a scene on Christmas Eve night. You can see the darkness and fog settling in and snow around the houses. I imagine there are carolers there singing We Wish you a Merry Christmas.
I colored my houses with Copics, leaving it a bit artsy and then sponged around the scene. I added a star made of Stickles. It doesn't show much of the twinkle. Ugh! I won't tell you how many pictures I made and this one with the dark background turned out best.
The challenge at CASology #67 this week is Country. I'm assuming that could also be another country or a country village so I'm joining the challenge with my Tuscan card. There are so many ways to interpret this fun challenge.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Christmas/Happy Holiday so I'll join them.
