Merry & Bright

I meant to do this one for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, stitch it up, but I ran out of time, but this week's theme is Party Time, and Christmas is a time to party as well, right? my New Year's eves are always boring, I stay home for my cats, they're not scared, but I like to be there and not really the party type anyway. It's funny thunder and or fireworks doesn't scare them, but a droplet of water freaks them out..and yet they go out in   a drizzly rain...? weird cats..

And the Male Room Challenge is the colour blue, so I link up another card there.

For my card I cut out a circle from Watercolor paper with a stitched edge die. also cut out the circle from white card and then diecut the village from the circle, so I have a stitched edge on it too.
This village is from Craft Emotions, but any will do. I almost used the Your Next Stamp one, houses on a hill, but I felt it  would cover too much of my blue medallion.

The blue is liquid watercolors from Ecoline, multiple layers and colors to build up the intensity, I think I've used three layers. There's a hint of ombre, but the Village covers most of it ...hehe useless..
I splattered white ink as snow or stars. Mounted the Panel and the village with Foamtape and adhered it to the base.

On the Base I stamped the sentiment from Simon Syas Stamp (Merry Trees) with Memento Paris Dusk, a really dark blue, just to stay with the blue colour theme.

See the links above to take part in the challenges if you're interested.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
