Christmas in July Week - Day Two - Manger Card with Rays Inking Technique

Welcome to Day Two of Christmas in July! For today's card project, I decided on a bit of a rustic feel, paired with one of the more religious sets from the Holiday Catalog.

And I have another video tutorial for you today, where I show you how I achieved the rays of light emanating from the manger. Check it out below, or on my YouTube channel.

One brief note that I didn't mention in the video: After I finished the stamping, I sprayed the focal image with shimmer mist. Be sure to use Shimmer Paint mixed with water if you stamp your image with Staz-On ink! Shimmer Paint mixed with rubbing alcohol will smudge Staz-On! If you use SU! Classic Ink, go ahead and use the mist you made with alcohol.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you'll join me again tomorrow for Day Three! :)

Happy Stampin'!
