* Vera Lane Studio: Three Kings


We're in mid July now. The weather here in the UK has been a bit cooler this last week and we did have a little rain on Thursday night. At the end of this week the schools break up for the summer holidays, so I hope the good weather continues. 
That being said, at Vera Lane this month we have the theme of Christmas in July.  It gives us northern hemisphere folk a chance to feel what Christmas must be like in Australia and New Zealand!

Janet has released a new digi set called Three Kings, and here is the card I made :

I made a Distressed Oxide gelli print for the background, using Mustard Seed for the sand and Wilted Violets and Faded Denim for the night sky. I added some stamping to the sand and the two side edges and inked all around the edges with Black Soot Distress Oxide.
The Kings are coloured with Copic Markers and popped on foam pads. I added some gold Sparkle Medium to the star and cut the sentiment into strips.
I only had 6 x 6 inch card bases, and my gelli plate is 5 x 7 inch, so I had to mat my background - I chose some gold card which adds a little shine.

That's all from me for today.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
