* Vera Lane Studio: Nativity


Happy Monday!

Today is my DT day at Vera Lane Studio. I'm posting from the shores of Loch Lomond in Scotland where I've just spent a beautiful long weekend!

I made a Christmas card with the Silent Night digi set. This set is incredibly cute and features five digi images. I didn't use the barn. 

I coloured the images with Copic pens, added some white Posca pen highlights and fussy cut them. The background is made using Infusions Golden Sands and Brusho Prussian Blue. The edge of the background was inked with black archival ink and Glimmer Mist was spritzed over the entire background. The sheen is so very beautiful. I arranges my images, along with a couple of animals from Farm Animals Set 1 onto the background and added the sentiment.

Silent Night                                  Farm Animals Set 1

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