I don’t have a lot of time this week so thought I would try to combine challenges with one entry. Yesterday was Rudolf Day with Sarn and the Less is More challenge is for three things on the card. The obvious answer to combining Christmas and three is the Kings/Wise Men. Sorted!
Stamp:Hobby Arts – three wise men
Memento Tuxedo Black
Distress Inks: Scattered Straw and Stormy Sky
Gold and Silver pens
Spectrum Noir pens
I stamped the wise men onto a panel of Neenah card and coloured them in with the metalic and Spectrum Noir pens. There is no blending to add definition because the stamp is a stylised design and I wanted to keep it that way. Using a hill stencil I added a faint hint of Scattered Straw at the base and Stormy Sky at the top to ground the wise men.
On an A6 card blank I used the distress inks to add ground and sky again matching up with the topper placement as much as possible.
I mounted the panel onto the front of the card and added a stamped greeting underneath.
I have been making our Christmas cards every year for over 20 years and with 200+ to do I try to keep the design as quick and simple as I can. I have a feeling that this one maybe our card for this year!
I am off now to visit Sarn at Rudolp Day and the Less is More challenge. Many thanks for visiting. Take care.
Whoops! Forgot I need two cards for Rudolph day. Fortunately I did make more than one.
