Prettie Sneak Peek!!!

Hi everyone!! Happy almost Thursday (grin). I promised a sneak peak of some of the new releases being released on Saturday, November 1, by Paper Pretties...and I meant it!!!

Can you LOOK at these stamps!!! sigh...I LOVE them!! For this card, I used the Nativity Set (Mary, Joseph & Baby Jesus) and the Worship Him set (Sentiment & Star). In order to showcase how GORGEOUS these images are, I decided to make a Shadow Box. I used the Shadow Box Tutorial on SCS, which is AWESOME and super easy to do. All of the images were watercolored with SU! inks an an Aquapainter, and I added a shimmer to the star and Mary's headress with a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen. I used Nestabilities for the opening, and ran all the panels through the Cuttlebug with the Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder, as I wanted to give it the look of a stable.
Here is some SUPER important Paper Pretties info for you!!
Cutie Pie Contest!!
