Baby Jesus

Today's card uses a sweet image from The Stamp Basket.  I've painted this one with my Distress re-inkers again, but I feel that this time the colours are a bit washed out and pale.  I've bought a new watercolour paper paper pad to try and see if this helps my painting a bit.  Keep watching this space!!! LOL

I also had a small mishap when colouring the image, and I coloured Mary's foot green when I was painting her head scarf.  I couldn't colour it pink then for her foot colour, so instead I pretended she was wearing shoes, and coloured it chocolate brown instead.  I think I will try to colour this image again sometime soon and see if I can improve!

Annette...I really like your Christmas card. It has a sweet vintage feeling to it....I think due largely to the background papers you've chosen. I love youe sweet little greenery, bows and tag that you've added to this card. And, the center focal point of the nativity is just so incredibly precious. You did a wonderful job of coloring it. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
