Whiff of Joy DT - sneak peek new stamp kit

I have another sneak peek for you! As well as all the wonderful Henry, Betty and Sammy stamps that are coming out on 1st September at Whiff of Joy there will also be a new stamp kit. It contains all these gorgeous Christmas images and the sentiment along with several other sentiments.
I thought a stairstep card would make a nice nativity scene for the images. It didn't turn out quite how I wanted, I just couldn't seem to get the idea in my head out onto the paper LOL - don't you hate it when that happens!? Oh well, maybe I'll have another go at getting my idea onto paper another time!

The papers are Making Memories brocade Noel and I have inked the edges with walnut stain distress ink. All the images have been coloured with copics and cut out.

I placed a circle around baby Jesus for a halo as you see in old paintings of the nativity and gave it a gold shimmer with liquid pearls. The sentiment and lantern are from the kit, mounted on a Spellbinders fancy tag.
The die cut swirl behind the cute little donkey is a new Christmas die from Sizzix and I added some gems from the Hobby House in a swirl also.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
