WMS Sketch Challenge #68

Hello, I hope your weekend is going great!  I haven't done much and it's Sunday already.  But, I have a card to share today, using Waltzing Mouse's new set "A Cottage Home".  I love that this stamp set has several cool stamps aside from the main cottage, perfect for creating a scene on your card or project. Take a look at the set below.


This card took a bit of time to colour but it was really worth the effort, I think (if you are interested, I've listed the Copic Markers I used at the bottom of this post).  So many awesome details on the stamps!  Here's some close up photos of the card...

To create interest & dimension, some stamped images were popped up with foam adhesives.

Here's a closer look at the stamped images.

 and, here's the sketch the card was based on :


I hope you like the card ;)  I'll be looking forward to read what you think.

Have an Amazing day!
