Welcome to another week at ODBD's Shining the Light Challenge. This week Chris has created a sketch for you to do...
And I am deeply honored because this sketch was inspired by a card I did a while back that you can see here.
And here is another interpretation...
This is a deeply personal card for me. As I shared with some of the ladies I design with, this is a little more "rustic" than what I am used too. I wanted to incorporate ODBD's We Three Kings stamp set into a card this year. When I saw this scripture, I immediately knew what I wanted to do. I selected purple card stock to represent the Magi and the greatest King of all, Jesus. I used touches of gold card stock (cut with Spellbinders Ironworks Motifs) to give a regal feel. I embossed the star and scripture in gold. And on the base I adhered distressed kraft paper and then some rough cut burlap tied with jute. I wanted this to represent the trappings that may have been on those beasts of burden and/or in the manger that day... It's very masculine and full of symbolism. I hope you take a few minutes this week to pull out some of your stamps and play along! I look forward to seeing what you do with this sketch! Blessings...
Now how to play...
