I`m not sure if I`m really enamoured with this card although I had fun doing it plus it hasn`t scanned in well at all. Really need to start taking photos I think. The challange over at Bah Humbug hall this week was `oldie but goldie`.The idea being to use stash that you`d forgotten about or haven`t used for ages if at all . In the bottom of the card I used gold foil over one of those glue transfer stickers. This was a kit that I have had for ages but never actually got round to using like you do Lol. I used a arch shaped stamp of a stained glass window to get the shape for the main image. I used distress inks sponged on for the background but I used twinkling H2O`s to colour in the three wise men, also hardly ever used, thats the H2O`s (I`ve never yet used this stamp before). The sentiment is from a hero arts stamp with the phrase in one line under an image but I just used the words and cut them up to use separately.  I think with hindsight I could make a much improved version as I`m not sure about the black but I wanted the foil image to really stand out otherwise to be honest this was a kit that was going to be boot saled !!. Thanks for looking x Vinny


  1. Well done for using things which have been lying idle - we all do it don't we - buy things and not get around to using them.

  2. Hi Vinny and a warm welcome to our Bah! Humbug! challenges. Thank goodness you didn't 'booty' this foil kit as I think you are going to have a lot of fun with it now it's open and ready to play. Hope you will continue to join in with us during 2011 and thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
