Three wise men
I have just bought the Tattered Lace die 'Three wise men' so I could not resist a play. So here is my first Christmas card for 2015 or for the person I may have forgotten!
I cut the figures out of black card and glued gold paper behind the figures of the kings. I then cut the shapes from grey core'dinations card and matted the black shapes slightly off-centre in order to create some definition when I fixed them to the background.
I sprayed navy core'dinations cardstock with iridescent spray and sparkle from Crafter's Companion and fixed this to white card. I then tore three pieces of cream core'dinations cardstock and attached these strips to the lower half of the card at the same time as adding two of the kings so that the camels feet appeared behind the sand ridges. I then added the third figure. I used a Promarker pen and distress ink to create shadow in the sand. Finally I added a gold peel off sentiment.
