We Three Kings...

I have (yet) another Christmas card to share today...featuring a Penny Black stamp called 'We Three Kings'. I started by blending Distress Inks on to a piece of wet watercolour paper (Mowed Lawn, Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Festive Berries & Chipped Sapphire), then once it had dried, I stamped the image stamp in Versamark and heat embossed it using 'Kettle Copper' embossing powder. I stamped the matching sentiment on to a piece of torn vellum in black Stazon,
