We Three Kings

I was lucky enough to be given some lovely stamps from a friend and amongst them were these Christmas images of the 3 kings, ive been keen to ink them up and stamp them for over a week but work and life got im my way of crafting these last few days.
I started by inking a piece of SplodgeAway elegance card with a with a brayer using cranberry, sailboat blue and sunset orange adirondack ink, then i added a little weathered wood and black soot distress inks, (Using the splodgeaway mat makes the blending and brayering so much easier) That completed my background. I stamped the kings and Bethlehem background with stazon black then to colour the kings i used marvy glitter markers, I added a few srars using a white distress marker, i randomly stamped a verse on the backing card and mounted the image onto silver matt mirror card. glossy accents and stickles were added for a little more dimension. That is another one of my many christmas cards i need to make checked of my list.
