Muse: ChristmasVisions 56 - Christmas Morn


Here's my card for this week's Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge where Kimberly challenged us (yes, I said it! I found this a challenge!) with this dramatic inspiration:



As always I am amazed and a little bit intimidated by Kimberly's technique. Often when that happens, I go in a completely different direction. But this week I was determined to give it a try, so I got out my Ziggies and gave it a whirl.

I am also linking up to Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty Challenge from stampersandee.

I used:
-Stampendous Clear Nativity
-Heart and Soul Rubber Stamps sentiment
-Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers

Ardyth, WOW! This is gorgeous! Great take on Kim's amazing inspiration card. I think this could be a fun idea using my SSS Nativity stamp set...if only I had Zig markers...I guess good old watercolors could work. Well done...this is so beautiful!

Ardyth...Amazing. I took out all the materials and will try to tackle in the morning. Kim' s card is amazing as well...this one is tough.

You seriously rocked this! Your night sky is so reminiscent of the Muse card, but of course you've taken Kimberly's card and made it your own.

You know how much I love a nativity card, Ardyth ... this is just fabulous ... the soft colouring is such a brilliant contrast to the outline style of the image! Hugs & bisous, Anita :)

What can I say ... maybe that one should not forget why we celebrate Christmas, great work and a reminder!
