Today's release is titled Enchanted Branches-Nativity and has so many beautiful, peaceful images. I decided to go with the image of Baby Jesus as it reminds me of the nativity my grandma would put under her Christmas tree.
I really wanted to keep this card as simple as possible. I colored the image with copics, tossing in some gold and a rust color for the blanket. I originally just had the white image against the green background but didn't like it much so I decided to add the patterned paper behind it. The gold from the image carries through to the paper and the red from the berries balances nicely against the patterned paper. I took the pine branch from the set and cut and colored out 3 of them. I laid 2 of the branches flat on the card along the top of the image panel and then I placed the 3rd one across the middle of the other 2 branches and popped it up for some dimension. The green paper in the background is embossed with a wooden plank design to keep the outdoor feel going.

Oh Lisa, I love the depth you created by cutting and stacking the branches above your beautifully colored image! And, you're right, that decorative paper is perfect - just helps bring your gorgeous coloring to life. :-)ReplyDelete
Very pretty! I am with Julie I think all your cutting is awesome (one of my favorites to do) and the layers are perfect.ReplyDelete
