The Craft Barn Weekly Challenge - Light

This week's subject for the Craft Barn weekly challenge is light.

My entry is another Christmas card. I need to lie down - two cards made now and it's only the middle of October! That's never happened before.

I stamped second impressions of a snowflake for the background using Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue. The strings of lights were stamped with Archival Watering Can, coloured with Copic markers and then I drew the wire with a fine liner pen. The sentiment was stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy. Die-cut snowflakes were brushed with Distress Ink to match the mat behind the panel and the card was completed with a little sparkle of Stickles to each light.

I'm finding it difficult to take a decent photo -  the pearlescent card is not helping and it is a rather gloomy day which is rather ironic considering this week's challenge subject!

2 Christmas cards... I only have one so far! Lovely Christmas cards, the lights stamp is great.
I have the same problem with photographing artwork nowadays and I am considering using the flash as there just isn't enough natural light...
