Decoupaged Christmas scenes

It was Lorraine's turn to choose the topic for the Christmas Card Club's challenge for today and she asked us to create a Christmas scene.

I've gone for the easy option once again and have used card and elements from last year's Hunkydory Christmas kit to make two cards featuring decoupaged scenes. Tbh I'm trying to use up some more of the kit, so any opportunity is good.

This photo makes the lampost look as if one layer isn't directly on top of the other, but it really is, it's just that the photo was taken at a bit of an angle to avoid too much glare from the flash.

This shows the build up of layers:

CHNC challenge 131: all wrapped up

CHNC challenge 131 starting today is 'all wrapped up' - this can be interpreted in many ways.

I've chosen to use the lovely ' bundled owl' image kindly supplied by one of the sponsors, Cedar Chest Designs. I've coloured with copics. Background papers were free from a magazine, mounted on to a red card blank, with the addition of three strips of washi tape that I got recently from Paperchase.

The card is based on the sketch for Merry Monday 68 on Always playing with paper:
