Create a Scene at Cupcake

Hello! Did you have a nice weekend? Hope so! I'm feeling a little more motivation, but despite that I am still not happy with my mojo. I just can't seem to find the right embellishment, finishing touch etc to add to my cards, so I'm not a happy bunny. However, I tried something new... I coloured on watercolour paper using my Promarkers/Flexmarkers and LIKED (yep you read it right) the result! Maybe there's hope yet?

We have a fab challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenge today, Donna has challenged us all to 'Create a Scene'. Here's mine...
This cute stamp was a present from my mam, how cute?! It's a Helz Cuppleditch clear stamp called Snoozing Santa. I just love the cat too! The stamp is only Santa in his chair, the rest I drew to create the scene (photo frame of rudolf, hot choc, newspaper and lamp are all draw). This is my effort of the colouring I mentioned above, what do you think? I find it difficult sometimes to blend the colours with Promarkers, and this seemed easier with the watercolour paper... and the ink didn't bleed over the lines! Here's a close up...
We're sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps this week, who are very generously giving away 7 digi stamps of the winners choice. Why not have a go at winning this super prize?! Check out the details at the Cupcake blog, and have a look at the fab creations the other Cupcake girls have come up with! Thanks for popping by today xx

Really a great card! I actually clicked on it from the cupcake challenge site because it caught my eye how cute it was. I luv the way you made the lamp-small touch that really brings the scene together-quite clever:)

Hi Shelly, this is such a cute card and WOW to you drawing the extras yourself, you are sooooo clever. Fab colouring too, I'd never have thought of using water colour paper for my PM's although my colouring will never be as good as yours whatever I use lol! :) Donna ♥ x
