Peace on Earth

Today's card features images that I colored back in October for The Daily Marker 30 Day challenge. All the images came from one of my very favorite Christmas sets ever, WPlus9 Drummer Boy. I cut them out with the matching Drummer Boy Die set and colored with Copic Markers.

I prepared the background by using the smooshing technique with Blueberry Sky ink onto Ranger Distress Watercolor cardstock. I then sprayed and tapped Hero Arts Unicorn White spray onto it for a snowy, foggy look. After the background piece dried, I cut it with a My Favorite Things stitched die. I stamped the sentiment and then assembled the scene attaching with a combination of glue and foam tape. I also cut a cross from gold mirrored cardstock using a die from the Simon Says Crosses Die set and placed in the sky rather than a star.

This card is a reminder that we need more peace and love in this world. I am signing off for a week or more to spend time with family while celebrating the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ. May you all have a blessed Christmas.
