CC189 We Three Kings


Hi again!!!

Had to play really quick for the CC189.
I've been wanting to create something with the MOJO56 Sketch from last Monday. I already had an idea, but wasn't sure about the colors yet...until today!!!
I started with a Whisper White card base. Then added the Pink Pirouette CS - which I pierced - and also added a circle of the Old Olive Prints DP (I exchanged the Kiwi Kiss with the Old Olive color). I pierced around the circle and did a *Faux Stitching* with the Chocolate Chip Marker. I also distressed the edges of the DP.
Next I stamped the *We Three Kings* image from *Our Daily Bread Designs* in Chocolate Chip Ink. I colored the the image with various Copic and Prismacolor Markers (I did try to keep them with the color theme). I distressed the edges of the image and layered it on top of Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip. To dress it up a bit I added a Medium Copper Brad on the right hand side.
According to the Sketch I added a *Star* Chipboard from the *On Board Accent* Collection and bedazzled it with some Brown Glitter from Martha Stewart.
Hope you like it??
If you haven't seen today's *BIC* Challenge go down one post and check it out....
