a gentle baby

Hello my friends. It has been a while since I blogged but in my defence I have been very busy getting various samples ready before I go on holiday.
It is Tuesday again and hence time for the Through the Craft Room Door challenge.
Before I launch into it, just a quick reminder that the new TTCRD magazine is now out. There is a video of it on my sidebar. 

The sponsor for this week is A Day for Daisies.

I chose this beautiful image to work with. I thought I should make a move on my Christmas cards and so picked a Gentle Baby. I really loved this image immediately, I thought there was so much tenderness in the way mother and child are looking at each other.

I also thought it would be fun to make 2 cards and see if I could change them somewhat. 
So for the first card I painted the image with a damp brush and distress inks.

I also used a spellbinders die, snowy acetate and some glitter.

For the second card, I flipped the image horizontally. This time I colouroed it in with promarkers. I felt that it looked quite different even though it was the same image, do you agree?

So as usual, the theme for the challenge is anything goes. For further inspiration using images from our sponsor you can see all the fab projects submitted by my team mates here.
So hope to see you on the other side, hugs Theresa xx

I would like to enter these cards in the following challenges:

Leaving you with the inspiration of God’s Word in Jeremiah 32:17 which says, “‘Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.”
