Away in a Manger - Spiral Whisper



Sprial Whisper have a lovely sketch to follow for their 4th Challenge, and after having a delivery of Janets Lovely Nativity Donkey and Angel I couldn't resist having a go. The Dt have come up with some great ispiration so click HERE to see them



This is my first attempt at using Copic Sketch Markers, they are lovely to use but I think I need a lot more practise, it is a completely different colouring method then the Promarkers, so I will carry on practising for now. I have added glitter to the angels wings and halo after all it is Christmas. The papers are from Dovecraft and have been mounted onto pale blue card. The Little Donkey was stamped first then masked and I stamped the angel, Joseph and Mary where coloured and then cut out and I used Silcone to mount them on top of the base picture. I didn' add a sentiment as I cut the second sheet of BP to show the words peace either side of the image. The wonderful Angel charm that is hanging from the snowflake was made by the Lovely Marlene.

I tried to take a photo of Marlene's lovely Angel Charm, but it hasn't come out very well.
