A Rainbow of Medieval Houses

When I first saw the Merry Monday challenge "Colours of the Rainbow", I was stumped.  Then I had three ideas all at the same time.  I posted one yesterday and am posting another today.  The third idea won't be made in time for the challenge.

For this one, I thought of a stamp I have of Santa flying over a row of medieval houses.  Then I remembered my trip to Copenhagen where I loved seeing all the tall narrow houses in different colours.  So here's what I came up with:

I used coloured pencils to make my rainbow of houses, went over the stars with my Stardust gel pen, and coloured in the moon with Wink of Stella.  A simple black border and a star embossed background finished it off.

Here's a photo of my inspiration, taken on my trip to Copenhagen a few years ago:


It's a beautiful city if you ever the chance to visit it!
