The First Noel

Our last new Flourishes set for November is The First Noel. This beautiful silhouette set is big and bold.

The First Noel Graphic

I stamped my image with Versa Fine Sepia ink on patterned paper, old old piece of 12x12 that I think is from Magenta.

I used Spellbinders die Fleur De Lis rectangles to make a mat for the image using gold card stock. It’s a deep rich shiny paper that really looks pretty in real life. The background paper is a scrap of Basic Grey…I’m not sure which winter line it’s from, but it’s a few years old. I added some Stickles to the stars and put the sentiment on the inside as I didn’t have room on the front. I tried to add ribbons, but nothing was appropriate-so I just left it simple. I used a Stardust pen to add sparkle to the stars and halo’s and other random area’s of the image. Lastly I added tiny crystal gems in topaz to the stars. You can see the sparkle in the image below.
