Jesus Is The Reason...

Hello! Yesterday the class at Online Card Classes was all about watercolor. For my card I heat embossed the nativity scene from the Greatest Gift set by Hero Arts. I used Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold embossing powder. Then the fun part, watercoloring! :) I used shabby shutters and peeled paint distress inks and water for the grass. I used tumbled glass, broken china, salty ocean, chipped sapphire, and seedless preserves distress inks on the sky. I wanted it to look like it was glowing close to the scene, and then get darker. 
The greeting is also from the Greatest Gift set by Hero Arts

I hope you're having a great day! I'm off to work on my homework from today's class. :)

p.s. I'm also entering this in the current Hero Arts Challenge in the Mad About Metallics category.
