Crafting In The Dark

Edited to add better photo!
Remember that Bruce Springsteen song Dancing In The Dark?  I'm changing the lyrics ...... !!

Here is a really poor photo of what I have done tonight - I've made this easel card to go on our mantelpiece when I (finally) get around to putting the Christmas decorations up.

Although the photo is rubbish (camera in one hand, daylight lamp in other) you get the idea - I'll edit to add a better picture when we eventually get some daylight.

I've used the Meoples Nativity Set for this
All painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Too many colours to list this time
Paper is from last year's Dovecraft Back To Basics Christmas
Giant pearls are from stash
Edges done with Gold Metallic ProMarkers so there is a gentle shine

These Meoples are so much fun - I was chuckling to myself all the way through making this!

Hugs, Sxx

The Meoples are kind of silly looking, in that fun way. You did an excellent job with the gold edging. I can never get smooth edges like that. You have talent!

This still looks gorgeous sweetie even though it was hard to photograph. The weather and light is a nightmare at this time of year.
