Kingly Inspiration

Hello everyone,

Today's One Layer Wednesday challenge from Jennifer Styles is a Walter Erhard photo inspiration from Vigo Stationary and I found a wonderful photo on which to base my card. I was also inspired by Friday's Daring Cardmakers challenge which was 'We Three ...'. My mojo is majestic.

The card base is from Recollections. The image is Stampin' Up Holy Triptych heat embossed with Close To My Heart silver pearl and coloured with Faber-Castell markers and Martha Stewart glitter markers. The sentiment is Cornish Heritage Farms Christmas Expressions. The embellishments are Close To My Heart Bitty Sparkles.

I have coveted this stamp set from the moment I saw and when I had the chance to buy a second-hand set I jumped at it. I will admit though that it was my daughter who did the colouring. I gave it three shots and it looked horrible so she volunteered. What a fabulous job she did. I think this is a great card. It is simple and the sentiment matches the image so perfectly. I will need to practise colouring but it will get there. Of course if I chicken out on the colouring I will to find some really inventive ways to highlight the great stamps in this set.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
