Oldie but goodie #9 and EveryDay Christmas #7, with video

The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: stencil it.

For this Oldie but goodie I've also combined the Everyday Christmas with a Penny Black wood mounted stamp called Xmas Crafts and it's from 2003.

But I found it's still available on Ebay , well 2 of them ;-)
I stamped the image with Simon Says Stamp Intense black ink onto Crafter's Companion Neenah paper and had do use both sides of the paper this time as I rocked the stamp and it moved. Lucky for me paper has two sides ;-).

I used the snowflake stencil from the Create a smile winter 2016 cardkit.
I thought it could look like the two critters are decorating the walls behind them with the snowflakes they're cutting out.
I used Memento summer sky for the inkblending. I used a brush as I found the inkblending foam kept getting caught in the sharp edges of the stencil, But the brush worked super.
I intentionally applied the color a bit random, so you get lighter and darker bits, also tried to do a light a coat as possible, so it would fade into the background.

I used Spectrum Noir and Illustrator markers to color the image.
Then adhered the panel to the cardbase with tape runner.
