MCV56 - Peace and Joy to you and yours

Muse: ChristmasVisions 56

Greetings Christmas Card Crafters!

This week Kimberly who is our muse provided us a water-colored gem for our inspirations. From Kimberly's card I chose a similar layout and colors, sentiment that includes 'Joy' stamped on the blue-hued panel, black silhouette with yellow behind it.  

The blue-hued panel was created using a stencil made from a snow slopes die and ink blended with Distress inks in blues, pinks, purples (the pink doesn't show well but it's there!). The black silhouette is die-cut from a sky line die. The yellow is ink blended with Distress inks. The star and gems were added to cover an oops!!

Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.

  1. Such a pretty city-scape. Could be Milwaukee or Chicago along the shore of Lake Michigan. Beautifully created water, and the sunset is just perfect. Very peaceful Christmas card. Bev

  2. You have changed the forest into an urban environment instead, good idea, and your card is really beautiful!

  3. Love the way you've interpreted this! That big star is the perfect finishing touch! So glad you joined us at MCV this week, Marilyn!
