Christmas at StampNation

Christmas is almost here. For all of you who do celebrate Christmas we, at StampNation, have a wonderful challenge ready for you this week. This week’s challenge is for you to be creatively inspired by a favorite Christmas carol. Our challenges never end, so you are invited to join in any time for some fun and a lot of inspiration. We have such a wonderful and growing group of talented people.

The carol I picked is “First Noel.” I found the perfect image for this challenge from AuroraWings. This sweetie is “Little Shepherd” and is available in Mitzi Sato-Wiuff’s Etsy shop as a digital image. I have colored him with my Copics and have die cut it with Spellbinder’s A-2 Distressed Edges die. The Little Shepherd was layered on antique gold cardstock, and Stampin’ Up!’s Bravo Burgundy.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 11, R02
Burnoose: E42, 43, 44, 47, 49
Thobe: E21, 23, 25, 27, 29
Lamb: C00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4
Grass: G40, 85, 94, 99
Background: W00, 0, 1, 2, 3

A few of the other supplies that I used are:
Designer paper from My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found Christmas
Cheery Lynn’s Lace Corner Deco B die
Distress Ink in Gathered Straw
Ribbon from my stash
