Here they are again ...

... the three kings. While the stamp was out I thought I'd use it again - Clarity stamp inked with versafine onyx black and heat embossed with clear detail powder. This time I've coloured the image using Sakura glitter and metallic pens. Before I had copics etc I used to use Sakura a lot - I raved about them - but I have to confess that they have been neglected in a box in the drawer. It made a change to use them. The sentiment stamp is by Inkadinkado.

It's always difficult to get a photo of a white card - this is the best I can do and, unfortunately, it doesn't show up the gloss of the embossing now the metallic glittery look of the colouring.

This is my first card for A card a day and also for my own CHNC challenge 96: no patterned paper, also for:
