how still we see thee lie. Howdy bloggers! I'm back on the blog, hoping all of my US friends had an enjoyable long weekend. I know we did!
Here is what I came to share tonight:
This was made with a cut file from the Silhouette Store called Bethlehem silhouette layered a2 card. It comes with everything you need to make the card, including a frame, but I only cut the building layers, and the sand and sky layers. Instead of cutting the sky from colored card stock, I used white and distress inked it instead. I *think* I used Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, and Blueprint Sketch. To add character to the building layers, I inked them with Frayed Burlap. The sand layer is inked with Antique Linen. The Peace sentiment comes from Celebrate the Season from Recollections. To match the gold glitter paper I used for the star opening, I embossed it using Recollections tinsel embossing powder in gold. The white "stars" were added with gel pen. I probably should have added some kind of shading to that doorway, but didn't think of it until afterwards.
