The Sunday Featured Stamper Challenge is to pick a card and change three things. This is the card that inspired me: Something Lavender
My first idea was to make a Christmas Card. I stamped the trees 5 times first in Old Olive then in Versamark, and then in Always Artichoke and Versamark. I clear Embossed the entire group of the trees.
Next, for the sky, I brayered on some Bashful Blue- oops- there was some green on the brayer (or in the blue ink- hope not), so the sky looked kinda like a tornado was on its way. Night of Navy to the rescue- I am using Stamping Up ink colors if you are wondering. I brayered lightly the Bashful Blue again to highlight the moon.
I sponged the navy ink around the edges of the card, and added just a touch below the tree bases for a little highlight.
Next, I added Irridescent Ice EP after I colored Versamark on the branches and the card base with the Versamark Pen. I did this twice and I made a mess- lots of glitter all over the kitchen!
I decided instead of just adding a sentiment, as was my initial thought, to add in the snow Shepherd Mom and Child and use the sentiment Seeking His Light. I like to try to make my Christmas Cards with a Religous tone if at all possible. Don't you love Mom's facial expression? Feeling the warmth of Jesus shining on her face- he's the reason for the season afterall!
The stamps I used are from Firecracker Designs by Pamela- the Snow Shepherd set and Just Breathe Again for the trees.

This also meets the Challenge at Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential- use a stamp repeatedly- as in my trees- on your card.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday!
