This challenge is up and running now through November 30th.

For my project, I made a Christmas card featuring this "Little Shepherd" digi stamp from the Aurora Wings store.
Here's the pic for you to check out : 

The card base is a dark brown Craft card stock cut at 4 3/4 x 6 1/4".
I stamped a sketchy border using VersaMark ink and inked the edges using Creamy Caramel ink from Stampin Up.
For the image, I printed it on a sheet of watercolor paper.
I used Distress and Recollections markers to color it in.
Here's a rundown of the colors I used:
- Skin: Tattered Rose, Light Pink
- Headpiece and Staff: Taupe, Dark Brown
- Robe: Light Blue, Turquoise
- Sheep: Tattered Rose, Light Pink, Taupe, Grey
- Grass: Kelly Green
- Sky: Royal Blue

To add a few extra details to the image, I used some white watercolor paint on the sheep's fleece.
I added some white to the shepherd's eyes and added an iris using a light blue marker.
I used some twine rope on his robe and head piece.
Once the image was complete, I trimmed it down to 3 3/4 x 5 1/2".
I layered it on a piece of ivory card stock, cut at 4 x 5 3/4", inked the edges and used foam tape to mount it to the card base.

For the sentiment "O Holy Night", I stamped it on a piece of ivory card stock in Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin Up.
I cut it into a tag shape, threaded some twine rope, and adhered it with foam tape.
To finish the card off, I added a few sequins and a star cut out of silver glitter paper.

And ta-da!! card complete!!

I hope you enjoyed this project for today!!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend and Peace!! :)

I will be entering this card into the Aurora Wings "Anything Goes" Challenge #9!!
