Hello there! Today I want to share with you a Christmas card featuring the Shepherds from Chocolate Baroque's A Child Is Born A4 sheet. This is one of four new Christmas stamp sets released in September. These are some of the most beautiful and elegant Christmas images around - truly.
You can also see my card over at the Chocolate Baroque Design Team Blog, but here I want to share with you the tools and products I used to make this project.
First I stamped the shepherds.
Then I made the masks - a small circle for the moon and another for the shepherds.
Next - some light inking to create the sky with several Distress Inks:
* Seedless Preserve, Dusty Concord, Weathered Wood, Faded Jeans and Stormy Sky *
For the stars, I dabbed on some Stardust Stickles.
The patterned paper is from Humphrey's Corner by Sally Hunter.
And now for the fun part - colouring! I've used Graph'It Markers ... and here are the colours:
Skin: Skin(4155); Light Caramel (4170); Peach (4175)
Head Cloth: Cream (1210); Sahara (1230)
Brown Shepherd: Havana (3245); Cigar (3255); Espresso (3270); Mocha (3280); Cream (1210); Pink Grey 3 (9303); Pink Grey 4 (9304); Pink Grey 5 (9305); Coral (5210); Tomato (5220)
Blue Shepherd: Misty Morning (7105); Sky (7125); Celestial (7130); Neutral Grey 0 (9500); Neutral Grey 1 (9501); Neutral Grey 2 (9502); Neutral Grey 3 (9503); Neutral Grey 4 (9504)
Sheep: Neutral Grey 0 (9500); Neutral Grey 1 (9501)
Grass: Normandy (8130); Chlorophyll (8150); Forest (8160); Tuscany (8270)
On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Magic set, with VersaMagic Perfect Plumeria.
