Nativity Silhouette

Today's post is a quick one. I made it the other day and keep forgetting to get it posted and I want to link to a couple of challenges.

I started by added blending distress inks on the cardstock for my background, which is one my favorite things to do! Once that was done I die cut the nativity and ground out of black cardstock. To turn my star white I used my Picket Fence distress marker to color it. I added all my die cuts to the base of the card and then stamped my sentiment in white. I also added some stickles to the star to give some sparkle.

You can see the stickles a little better in the close up...

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

  2. Your sponged sky is amazing! Love the silhouette die-cuts. Thanks for sharing at Happy Little Stampers.

  3. This is a lovely die & looks wonderful against the shaded sky with the gleaming star in the heavens. The sponging in the skyline looks terrific and it's just a perfect card to remind us of the reason for the season. TFS & playing in the HLS December Christmas Challenge.
