Celebrate the Season

I saw a card/technique by Nichole Healy and decided to give it a try using Close To My Heart stamps. I have seen a similar card by another CTMH consultant, so it was nice to see that others were inspired by Nichole as well. I used the Glory to God stamp set to create this holiday card and was quite pleased with the results.
I started off by sponging Bamboo ink around all the edges, bringing it towards the center of each layer w/o inking it so it got lighter towards the center. I then sponged Desert Sand ink around the edges only. Next I stamped a variety of word stamps, including the verse Luke 2:14 that comes with the stamp set. I did those in 3rd generation Desert Sand. The wise men & baby Jesus were done in black. I also did some of the stars in 3rd generation Desert Sand ink too, and kept the one in the center 1st generation to stand out. I used a tiny sparkle on the middle star as well, so it would shine brighter than the others. The saying Celebrate the Season was stamped in black also.
I hope this card has inspired you to try this technique as well. It's a great way to Celebrate the Season.
