2 Shepherds

For the current challenge over at the Colour Crazy Craft Challenge. I couldn't decide on the colour so I did 2 colourways.
Both use the same image from our sponsor which is All Dressed up and the image is

The first version I've done in blue. Coloured with Polychromo pencils.
There are 3 patterned papers and card for layers. 

I've then decorated with some ribbon, snowflake buttons and a circular sentiment. There is just a little sparkle on the stars on the image.

The second I've done in red colours. Also coloured with polyhromo pencils. A different layout for this one using only 2 patterned papers and some matching layers.

For this one I've used some tree shaped brads and wrapped red twine round them to decorate. Also with a circular sentiment and a little sparkle.

It's the last challenge for 2020 at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge.

For my card this month I used a Sweet Poppy Stag Courage stencil.

To start with I made the circle scene. I've used the Sweet Poppy circle stencil to put in the background colour. Then I've stamped in the Lavinia trees and added some tiny shade detail with pencils

. Then I've used white paste through the stag stencil, parts of the stencil have been masked off as I only wanted the stag on this card. Once dry I've coloured over the paste with Copic alcohol pens.

Finally the sentiments are from Sweet Poppy too and just a hessian knot. I think this is a great male card.
