Stained glass mother and child

A set of five cards for a commission. I stamped the lovely Berkeley Stained glass mother and child, inked with versafine onyx black and embossed with clear detail powder. I coloured with Chameleon pens, not using the fading method with them, but just using as ordinary alcohol pens. I then cut round the images and mounted on to pearlescent white card blanks and added the sentiments that were printed with my dymo letratag labeller.

The photo doesn't do justice to the colours. I coloured the skin tones with quite a deep olive brown, but it's come out a lot lighter here. So many nativity pictures tend to show Mary and Jesus with pale skin whereas they were from an Eastern country.

These are for:
