three kings (by Veronica)



 I don't know about you, but Christmas in a heatwave just didn't seem right!

This is a big stamp, so for my first card I opted for simple - red and yellow brusho powders sprinkled over a square of white card and spritzed with water to create my background.
the stamp was then inked with black versafine and stamped into the centre. I used a black fineline pen to extend the stonework either side of the archway before mounting onto a white card blank.





My second card started off with a white card blank randomly stamped using a window from the gothic fragments stamp set using a light brown ink, which was also brushed round the edges.
I stamped the kings three times onto white card. The kings themselves were coloured and fussy cut out from one image and the archway from another - the third was used as the base and just the gap through the archway and the floor coloured with grey brusho. The archway was coloured using sandstone brusho and a waterbrush. I used glue to add the kings in the background and foam pads for the leading king and the archway.

  3. Two fabulous cards using this lovely traditional image Veronica, and the CAS look with the stamping on to a Brusho background is is so lovely and bright, and then the really beautifully coloured dimensional with the fussy cutting and layering, and tbe added linework on both with the added bricks on the wall looks great. x
