This card is literally a scripture card - the distressed paper is part of a page of the Gospel of Luke. I found a second hand new testament in a local thrift shop and decided that I could use it for more than reading.....
The stamp is one of my original christmas stamps from Kiwistamping, a local firm.
The rectangle was cut, embossed and stencilled with a nestie rectangle - I used Whisper Ink - Mossy Stone. I then crushed and generally distressed the scripture page and used some Tim Holtz distress Tea ink...When I attached it , I deliberately left it looking scrunched and dimensional.
The image was stamped in memento black ink and painted with Twinkling H2O's before being mounted on a slightly larger circle of gold paper. I used dimensionals to lift the image.
The background paper was from a pack I bought at the Warehouse (equivelent to Micheals), and I sprayed that and the base card with LuminArte Shimmering Mist paints. I was not worried about the slight blotching as that gave the impression of stars, always essential on a Christmas card :-).
I loved creating this card, and I hope you enjoy it too. Thanks for leaving a comment to let me know you have visited - I am blessed by your calling in.
