Believe in Christmas by Donna Gray

Hello everyone, 

Donna here today with a slightly alternative Christmas card for you using a rather wonderful Donna Downey stencil. I love this stencil as it’s so versatile.

What To Do: 

Use a sheet of Strathmore Mixed media paper for this, place the crafters workshop stencil on top and spray with 2 different colours of Distress Stain spray, blot and dry completely.
Next, position the Donna Downey stencil over the background and dab some black Distress ink through it, sprinkle a little bit of water on the ink, blot off.
Stamp 3 Santa hats from Katzelkraft on some more Strathmore paper and colour with your chosen medium (I used a Prima water soluble crayon), fussy cut them out and adhere to the top of the heads.
Lastly, take a black pen and trace through a Tim Holtz stencil for the word believe and then adhere to Kraft cardstock. Add a little stickles to the front of the hats.
There you have the 3 wise men ;)

Supplies Used:
