Starry Night Nativity

Hello everyone!! You might already know that I'm one of the guest designers for Fairy Tale Challenge Blog for this quarter. I'm so excited to be working with the team. It's time for a new challenge and our theme is to use starry sky or cosmos.

Right now, I'm on Christmas mode and here's what I created :)

I inked a piece of white cardstock with DI Tumbled glass, Weathered wood, Iced Spruce, Black soot and another blue ink. I hand drew all the stars - some were embossed with Zing silver embossing powder and for some I used silver glitter gel pen. For the star pointing to the manger, I drew a bigger star on a piece of paper, fuzzy cut it and embossed it with silver embossing powder.

I was planning to cut the manger silhouette on my Cricut, but my laptop is not working once again :(. So I had to hand draw and cut it. I used a white tissue paper as a backing for the silhouette and used DI Squeezed lemon for the halo and some light. The sentiment is from Sweet n Sassy Christmas Penguins stamp set. I embossed it with the same silver embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by. Please forgive me for the image quality. My laptop is still not working and I'm using my husband's for posting this. I tried to use some online image editing software which I'm new to, so it's taking me some time to learn it. Also, my comments on your blogs may be in a small sentence. I do love to leave large comments, but typing on my mobile is definitely not something I enjoy :) Thank you so much for understanding.

This is one of the cards for Caring Hearts Card Drive.

Lovely creation. I love the way you created the background with your distress inks.

I know how you feel without your laptop. I am in the exact same situation right now :( Hope everything goes well for you.
