clean and simple nativity

This is my last Christmas card and a quickie as I realised that I hadn't posted this one to friends who live in the USA. I decided to make a light weight single postcard type card with an attached stand like on a photo frame ,in the hopes it will arrive on time. The image is from LOTV and just super cute. I coloured with promarkers that I used like watercolours by scribbling onto acetate and painting onto the image with a water colour pen. I think it works quite well though you have to work pretty fast before the promarkers dry on the acetate.

The star is coloured with sakura gel pen in silver, well there has to be some sparkle. I also added sparkle with the moonglow mica embossing powder in  ruby obsidian which is a freebie magazine stamp. Quick and simple but hopefully it sends our love and best wishes across the miles.
