Monsieur Mojo’s been doing his Christmas shopping over the last few days … must’ve been ’cause I’ve not seen hide nor hair of him since Thursday last week, despite turning the house upside down over the weekend. Tonight he came back and gave me a helping hand with this …
I’m playing along at One Layer Wednesday, where Karen‘s the host and has challenged us to create a card with something shiny or a bit of bling on it. Joining in also at Dynamic Duo’s … the colours are Midnight Muse plus one other choice (perfect for this image), and as Simon Says Stamp Wednesday is having an Anything Goes week, I’m playing there too.
I love this stamp and the sentiment … they’re from Hero Arts … and were stamped with Memento Paris Dusk (the closest colour I have to Midnight Muse). The central panel was masked and inked in bright pink, and as I wanted to create ‘starlight’ in the stable, the area around it and the star and were more lightly sponged than their surroundings. My bit of bling is on the star … it hasn’t caught the light on the photo, but it’s there, shining brightly (of course … that’s where the starlight came from!). There’s also a touch of Wink of Stellar around baby Jesus’ halo, that’s always there, but you probably can’t see that on this picture either.
Hoping that Monsieur M has finished chasing around all over the place and will be home for a while … I’ve lots to do! Thanks so much, as ever, for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
