Blast from the Past

Morning all and thank you for popping in today. 

I hope you are all ok and well. 

What a strange night, hail, thunder and lightening. 

I was thinking about the latest challenge over at Clarity Stamps Blast from the Past

Now the stamps which I use every year are these on my card. 

I have used the Manger stamp without the words for this card. 

Added the 3 wise men and the star. I have used the Misti stamping tool 
which helps to get an even pressure and colour over the white card blank. 

If you are not totally happy with the black you can ink again and not worry about 
movement of the stamps giving a ghost image. 

Then I used the Clarity blending mat to make the background using Clarity Brushes. 

Final step to mount onto white card blank. 

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following 


Still working on my material pine cones    😀  😇

Have a great day and I look forward to seeing you again
