Lying in a Manger

Happy Thanksgiving to my USA readers! One of the fun things about being all caught up on design team requirements is creating cards that combine products from all different companies! I just love the Lying in a Manger stamp set from Unity and I combined it with a sentiment from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and a stencil from Whimsy Stamps. 

To create my card I used three colors of blue distress ink to create an ink smooshed background on mixed media paper. I added the stars to the sky using gesso and the Twinkle stencil from Whimsy Stamps.  I love creating cards about the real meaning of Christmas.
