Jesus is the Reason....


This is a simple card with lots of impact, The stamps is from Inkadinkado, I bought it last year after Christmas on Clearance. I double matted it the bottom mat is the same paper and I embossed it with the Tim Holtz bark embossing folder and  distressed it with Tim holtz Distress ink, then a black mat, then the stamped image, also distressed and colored with Copic markers. I colored the image with light colors to mimic watercolors and I used my Irock to add some stars. The sentiment is from Scrappy mom's Stamps, "Winter Wishes" stamp set. I feel like the black mat adds a lot of impact, I love the way this card turned out.

@Scrappy Mel
Everything (except the card base which is Kraft paper, and the black mat) is on white paper but I distressed it heavily!
