Trawling through craftie shops on line recently a couple of stamps which I thought looked a little different and possibly interesting just jumped into my basket by accident......😳😳
Interesting they were - they took an age to colour and so kept me occupied!
I am happy though with the way they turned out so here's the first one (The other similar stamp has Angels on it which I'll share later)
It took me a couple of hours and this was my first attempt so there are places where I think the shading could have been better but overall not too bad.
If you look very carefully a litle way down under the point of the star is a tiny arch where there is a manger - it's really small and to be honest I only noticed it as I got to it with the paint.
I cut out the finished piece and popped it up with 3d pads onto the white base card.
This is quite a big stamp and there wasn't a lot of room for a sentiment on my 6" x 4" card but found this small Penny Black one which I think is ok.
A friend asked me for several Christmas cards with a religious theme so at least these stamps are going to get a bit of use - which is more than can be said for a lot of my Christmas stash!
As this is the first outing for this stamp I am joining Darnell at the NBUS Challenge!
As ever, thanks for taking the time to look, hope all is well in your part of blogland. Stay safe. x
